    That's not garbage. That's a tasty and nutritious lunch.
    Being from the south and knowing what good fried chicken is. It isn't KFC.

    Doesn't change the fact that chicken is nutritious food.

    One of the biggest protests globally in solidarity with eachother all revolving around raising the minimum wage. I support these protests, and believe not only should the minimum wage but one of the most profitable industires should be paying their employees much much better. Im behind the $15 demand.

    I say pay them 25 an hour..... totally unskilled labor

    If a $15 minimum wage was ever passed all that would be accomplished is that the fast food industry would finally go automated.

    The $15/hour fast food jobs that are left would be for those few who are needed to service the hamburger making robots...

    The only thing holding back automation in a fast food restaurant is that it is still cheaper to have employees.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    That particular one? No. Which isn't to say that there aren't other forms of capital that owners can invest in to replace and reduce labor costs in those tasks.

    Automation is going to happen eventually anyway.
