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.

I would tell all my employees to go work at Mickey Dee's, that would be the end of that.

Hell I say give it too them. An important lesson will be learned about the true value of their skills.

Most fast food isn't 'cooked' these days it's microwaved. You think it's a big step from having a person microwave something and having a machine do it? People keep getting more expensive and machines keep getting cheaper. Want to know how this story ends?

I don't see those burgers being microwaved or the fries. The fries are fried right in a deep fryer. I've seen it numerous times. The burgers are done on a flat grill. Then they're put in a warming tray. You can see this just by peering around the corners.

Also, why is everyone responding as if only fast-food places flip burgers.

Want some economic dignity? Do something that's worth a living wage, like selling meth.

Well if that happens it will be the end of the fast food industry.

No one's gonna want to pay $10 for an "extra value" meal. Their extra value menu items are already $2-3 too high, but that's due to inflation. Can you imagine if these places like McD's pass on that cost to the consumer?

**** that mess.

Maybe this is America's way of fighting obesity. Just make everything cost so damn much that even some of the dumbest people won't walk into a McD's or BK anymore. (jk)
