    i made the point about college which you didn't address.
    What about colleges? Yes they expect better wages. But so do workers that make minimum wage. Inflation and the increase in productivity also should raise the wage..

    these people want something for nothing.
    The minimum wage was intended to keep up with inflation.... Is that "nothing"?

    Excellent post. I agree completely. In my BPO firm we employ a lot of foreign nationals, their pay is much much lower than American minimum wage and they never complain, in fact they are downright happy they got a job.

    No that was the initial protest which started the movement which was 2 years ago. Since then it has been spreading.

    Most fast food workers seem ok with what they make I have seen none on strike anywhere in the city I live in.
    When an industry goes on strike most stay at their jobs that does not mean "they seem ok"... Ask any service industry worker if they are ok with their wages I gurantee most will say no. As long as its not to a boss of course...


    So much for workers of the world unite. Socialism falls flat again.
    Somehow a strike equates socialism...

    Enough to keep up with productivity and inflation.

    The number in the US is about 1000 according to the link in the OP the rest are in other nations and this is a triviality.

    When an industry goes on strike most workers ( if not all ) do in fact go on strike forcing the business to shut down otherwise it is meaningless.

    This one is meaningless and it was you equating it with some sort of advancement of socialism which is like being happy at the spread of naziism.

    You are forgetting an "s"
    "In the U.S., organizers said thousands"

    When an industry goes on strike most workers ( if not all ) do in fact go on strike forcing the business to shut down otherwise it is meaningless.
    Not true. A strike is when workers refuse to work. It says nothing about the whole industry has to or the majority of industry has to. 45,000 workers of verizon went on strike in very recent history, which is not even close to the amount that work for them and that was considered "huge".


    This one is meaningless
    How? By attracting public attention and awareness. Not meaningless at all... Especially when the vast majority of Americans believe the minimum wage should be increased...

    and it was you equating it with some sort of advancement of socialism
    Raising the minimum wage is socialism? **** by your knowledge some GOP Presidents who signed a raise in the wage must of supported socialism!

    which is like being happy at the spread of naziism.

    You can pay one of them $290 per week to stand outside with a sign that says, "On Strike!" That would be one way to show your support.

    What are the possible outcomes for the individuals who are on strike?
