    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.
    This isn't "fast food workers" kicking off global labor action. This is labor unions kicking off global labor actions. They organize the protests, pay people to attend, donate the busses and fire up the troops.

    You can do anything that is legal, to prevent unionization. Such as lobbying the employees not to form a union.



    Why are you not following the conversation?
    Nothing I said even suggests that such activity could/should be banned.

    So again.
    Again, youre saying ban labor unions. That suggests govt action. Im saying deregulate them. Its a minor difference, but same result.

    Raising the wage is not giving them a "free lunch". In fact it will take more people off these "free lunch" programs which you are adamantly against.

    I have a high tech, skilled job that requires training, experience and is in demand. I make averaged out 16.3 an hour.

    How is flipping burgers commensurate with my job in terms of demand, skills or results?

    Also, why should private companies, investors and yes consumers over pay for labor?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You know, they can protest all they want, the value of their work will never be $15p/hr. If they get that money, then something's gotta give somewhere else. The left just wants to keep their blinders on, and ignore that fact. You can't just create an artificially imbalanced situation and expect it to stay that way without consequences.

    You are continuously reading what is not there.
    I did not say ban them.
