The $15 an hour march towards the impossible.
I'm not exactly sure how many workers either walked off or didn't show up to work on Thursday due to the strike, but any of them who did do it should have been fired the next day for "job abandonment". There is a little fact that the malcontents didn't comprehend, when they went on their one day strike. They weren't members of a union, so they didn't have the right to strike. In the video, I find it ironic and funny that a member of the Media Research Center interviewed a "Community Organizer dressed up as a clown".
Liberals wanting something for nothing doesn't surprise me. That is what they are all about. Many liberals thought that Obamacare was going to usher in the era of free health care, wow they thought wrong on that. Fast Food restaurants pay low wages for a very simple reason. Those types of jobs do not require a formal education or a specialized skill to perform. Anyone using liberal logic doesn't see reality that way. They want to be paid what people who have specialized skills or formal education get paid. Now common sense would say that fast food workers should simple get a marketable skill that is in demand and make fifteen dollars an hour or more the common sense way. Again, it comes back to the get something for nothing mindset, Of course these brainiacs aren't exactly knowledgeable on how business and economics work. This is CONgressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota speaking at a Fast Food Rally calling for Obama to use an Executive Order to raise the minimum wage. Keith is good a political grandstanding and blaming all possible ills of the poor, the suffering etc on the GOP. What he's not good at is telling the truth to the people. The truth is that raising the minimum wage or giving Fast Food Workers $15 an hour isn't going to lift these people out of poverty nor will it give them that illusive "living wage" they claim they want.
The unions, mainly the Service Employee International Union SEIU, are behind these rallies and staged strikes. This isn't some grand national grassroots uprising by fast foot workers. It makes for a great story line though. With union membership in a deep decline, the fast food industry is just another target for the unions to try and latch onto while using the fast food workers as pawns dangling that $15 an hour pipe dream carrot in their faces that will never get.
