    Phew, I'm glad that I bagged my lunch to work.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    Isn't this old news, or are they trying again.

    If they are smart, every fast food joint impacted will have already sent out notices that failure to show for an assigned shift will result in a termination.

    I hope you paid yourself the pro-rated equivalent of $15.00/hr for your effort. Otherwise you're just exploiting yourself.

    I expect this time will be as ineffectual as the last time. In a pinch most fast food places can stay open just by pulling together their shift management staff.

    I wonder if these people realize that if they're successful, many of them are out of jobs -- not because the chains can't afford it, but because for $15 an hour, they won't be settling for THEM anymore.

    I packed three lunches today, maybe I need to start charging for my services instead of letting my family exploit me. Them peanut butter sandwiches don't make themselves. Should I go on strike?



    Now give me some support here before a certain someone tells me it's just my womanly job to do it!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Excellent point. At $15 an hour they can do a little better than the dropout working for beer money.

    $15 is too much for flipping burgers especially when many skilled trades start off at a wage in that ballpark. They should be thrown a bone though. Give em' a half a buck and move on.
