Burger flippers want $15/hour

Like this will happen.

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



KANSAS CITY, Mo. ó Fifteen dollars an hour. Thatís 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 canít live or support their families on what theyíre 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 nightís 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 canít 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 thatís 7.25. In Missouri itís 7.35. So 15 dollars would be more than double their current pay.

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

Don't get the mentality ???

I used to work minimum wage jobs too when I was a kid. I wanted to make more money.....guess what? I did something about it as opposed to whining about it. Nobody wants to work for anything anymore.

This is so blatantly retarded I am angry. Protesting that you deserve to make $15 and hr....in fast food. Those ****ers are lucky they make minimum wage. Most drive thru fast food workers deserve no more than like $4 an hr. Their lack of attention to any detail whatsoever is mindboggling. I one time had my order messed up at the Santa Fe McDonalds not once, not twice, but 3 god damn times. It was just me. Nobody else. It might be impossible for them to get your order right if u were a family of 5.

Within the context of how the system works I can understand it. One could argue that the employees are trying find out what they're really worth. They 'think' they are worth more so they are demanding more and if they actually are worth more then it's fine they'll get it. The problem is that I'd bet many of them aren't even worth the minimum wage they are getting.

Things have been simplifying and automating in the food service business rapidly...all this does is make it happen sooner!



Hi...welcome to McDonalds....please make your selection....think this takes nearly as many people to run as a fast food place today?(and it uses less space and may not even have seating to clean/power/etc)

Ok let's say they fought hard and got the $15/hr, how many would quit their current job to ask if they want fries with that shake?

The only way I can explain this is to assume that they're deliberately aiming high in the hopes that after negotiations they'll make something like ten. It still won't happen, I don't think, but that's my best guess, because otherwise that's just completely out of touch with reality.

I agree with the bolded part. The part timers deserve minimum wage, the full timers deserve slightly over that and the management deserves somewhere in the 10-12.00 and hour range. Besides if these workers believe this will do anything but get them fired they are mistaken.

I wonder if people will ever understand that you aren't paid based on what people think you personally are "worth", you're paid based on the scarcity of the skills required to do that job.
