    I refuse to eat there based a lot on the fact that I wonder what a bunch of disgruntled employees would do to my food. I cant be the only one.
    who are you to pass judgement on their demands?

    "Work that isn't that much"?

    And the second line is illegal...you cannot fire workers for striking, not since around 1900 anyway.

    Perhaps an increase by a maximum of two-three dollars an hour. Modest increases at least temporarily have their impact against fluctuations in the cost of living, but no, the rest of the labor pool would start desiring $25 an hour to balance out with the minimum wage earners.

His constituents are directly affected with loss of jobs when GM decides to build cars in China and Mexico instead of the US. Why the double standard, Sherrod? :
    I'll tell you why, the unions are big campaign donors and eventually they want to unionize fastfood workers. And the gains these workers would receive with a minimum wage hike would eventually go right to the union. FACT

    With respect to their demands --> to their employer. I have no moral standing.
    With respect to 'their demands' {in quotes because of the general discussion regarding the minimum wage} to have the government interpose? I'm a citizen

    They should get 40 bucks an hour. Why not, right?
