Burger flippers want $15/hour

Like this will happen.

http://fox4kc.com/2013/07/29/kansas-...-minimum-wage/



KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Fifteen dollars an hour. That’s how much some fast food and retail workers say they deserve to make an hour. On Monday protests will happen in seven U.S. cities including Kansas City to push for the change.

The workers planning to protest say they want economic dignity. They say that means livable wages, benefits and humane working conditions. They say they can’t live or support their families on what they’re making.

Rallies are planned in Kansas City as well as New York City, Chicago, St. Louis, Washington D.C. and other cities.

Some workers say they plan to walk off the job in a one-day strike. Famed civil rights leader Reverend CT Vivian will lead Monday night’s events. Vivian worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Junior and has provided civil rights counsel to several presidents including presidents Reagan, Clinton and Obama.

Industry representatives say they can’t afford to pay employees more. They say most fast food restaurants operate on a meager profit margin making it impossible to increase wages.
Most fast food and retail workers make minimum wage. In Kansas that’s 7.25. In Missouri it’s 7.35. So 15 dollars would be more than double their current pay.

Monday’s rally starts at 6:30 at the Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church in Kansas City Missouri.

Since when did fast food be become a career? Sure if you go into management I can see it. If you don't like the wage do something to strengthen your position in the Job market.

Can you imagine what that kind of wage increase would do to prices? I think most people see Wendy's and McDonalds or what ever Fast Food chain and think "Rich Corporation" A lot of these restaurants are owned by franchisees who really aren't drawing mega salaries out of them.

I have known a few franchise business owners and none of them is what I would call rich.

Somehow, you just knew this was tied to racism.

Do you want $15 an hour? Then get some skills and seek a job that pays $15 an hour.

I wish my job paid a $1,000,000 salary. Maybe I should go out on the street and whine about it.

I think that's part of the problem. People seem to want/expect every job to be a career these days. But these kinds of jobs are capable of supporting a family on, and they were never meant to be.

Gee, one thing I've enjoyed during this depression is a good $8 burger. I don't want to pay double that. I'll stay home and make 'em!
Talk about biting the hand that feeds 'em! Then again, that's why they're in that job.

When Jujitsu Instructor buddy managed the local Sonic he paid a few of his employees in the neighborhood of $15/hour but they were good, reliable employees and deserved it. He wanted to keep them around so he paid them like it.

You don't work so there's no way you can afford $8 burgers or much of anything. Unless your hubby gives you spending money.

Mrs. Radar had a falling out with her last gay friend because he was complaining that he couldn’t get a job that paid him what he feels he’s worth. Mrs. Radar pointed out he should’ve spent his college time learning a more marketable skill and that was about the last they’ve talked to each other.
I won’t even get into the irony of a gay man getting his masters in music on the pipe organ.
