"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance." William Faulkner
Also disconcerting is they expect sympathy from mcdonalds. They should instead gather other workers making poverty wages, from various industries, and protest at city hall or the state capital, or even D.C., places where they have a right to be heard and have a snowball's chance in hell someone there will listen. Become aware of politicians who have done nothing to raise the minimum wage and hold them accountable. But probably most of them don't even vote or have any idea who their representatives are.
the manufacturing jobs are gone for a reason. to much regulation and to many greedy unions have made it impossible to have manufacturing here in America.
it is simply too expensive.
80% of mcdonalds are not owned by the corporations. they are franchise companies and independent stores.
what the employee's get paid are up to the owners of the franchise not mcdonalds corporate.
that is something people just don't understand.
no one is going to pay 15 dollars for a mcdonalds meal so the drive through guy can make 15 an hour. they are barely paying the price now as mcdonalds is in a tail spin and losing ground
to better burger joints.
