    200 take part in largest strike in fast food history - Salon.com

    Are we seeing a trend among the lowest paid workers?

    I still think they're timing is bad because there are so many who are willing to take the crappiest jobs for the lowest pay because they can't get jobs in their own area of expertise. People who have been unemployed the longest are the ones who have the hardest time getting back into the market.

    200 is the largest fast food strike in history? lol....

    unless you plan to own a franchise or work for corporate working at the retail level in fast food is meant to be a stepping stone, not a career.

    Why isn't the minimum wage $125,000/yr?

    Why should anyone make less than that?

    Wait! Make it $250,000 so everyone will be rich!

    That's the problem...While I might want to feel bad someone
    is on their feet all day doing a shit job...Well what is their education?
    What are they qualified to do?....

    Go study in your free time and turn the Play Station off for a while and try to get into
    another line of work....

    Oh wait I get it...
    It's the republicans fault.
    It's Bush's fault.

    If you are working at a McDonalds and you're not the owner or a manager or in college, then it's time to admit you've made some poor life choices. It isn't McDonald's fault, it isn't Wendy's fault, it's YOUR fault. Stop blaming someone else and fix it.

    Don't worry. Fast food will be outlawed there soon.
