    Why don't you actually read what has been said.
    Then there would be no confusion on your part.

    Your the one that needs to get over the correction.
    Stop misreading/attributing and I am sure there will be nothing point it out.

    Re: Fast-food workers kick off global labor action

    Since when did so many abandon the free market? Flipping burgers is now a profession? When did this happen? Is the economy in every nation that bad that this is now a career path? When I was growing up it was kids and "special" people working at fast food joints. Learning responsibility, saving money, etc. Sorry, a career in flipping burgers and fries is not worth $15 an hour. What skills do you need for that job? They can't even spread the pickles out properly, they just pile everything in the middle.

    $15 an hour is for associate degree skill level, not high school dropout skill level. So are all these socialists calling for raises for every other profession also? Is it fair to the people who spent the money and time to get an associates degree to have the same pay as a burger flipper? So lets raise everyone's wages in every profession by over 100%. That ought to be fair right? Ridiculous, the whole damn "civilized" world is ridiculous. No long term thinking applies anymore. Selfish attitudes of instant gratification took over at the expense of the future. We should be ashamed. Everything is NOT equal in the real world, or have we forgotten that there are always winners and losers? Not everyone is a winner.

    On the bright side, now maybe fast food chains will start dying out when the price of products goes up. I say products because it is barely food. Employers NEVER eat the cost. Their margins MUST go up. So you know who the costs will be passed to if this happens. So should we also freeze price increases? The free market is pretty much dead. The joys of short-sighted thinkers and unintended consequences.

    I will agree that those on strike will likely not get everything that they want right now.

    But that doesn't mean that there will not be change eventually.

    How do you propose employees combat the might of the government?



    A good start would be voting in people who support their ideas and voting those who oppose their ideas out.

    It's called democracy and it has worked all over this planet.
