Fast food workers are set to strike Thursday in cities throughout the United States, including New York, Chicago, Indianapolis, Memphis, Denver, San Diego and Boston. The Service Employees International Union is organizing workers.

The largest chains targeted are Burger King Worldwide Inc. (BKW), Subway, McDonald’s and Yum! Brand Inc.’s Taco Bell and KFC, as organizers are seeking to force a “sector wide” response . . .

  1. Fast food workers demanding 15 dollars an hour? What a joke.

    Tell me, why should I have to pay taxes to support the welfare state? Why should I HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR MISTAKES???

    If you cannot afford to have children, THEN DO NOT HAVE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!

    Sterilize all people on welfare. Problem solved immediately.

    1. Thank you for reading, John Doe.

      I hope the fast-food workers get an increase in wages, and a living wage is not a joke.

      As far as the “Why should I have to pay for your mistakes???” question, I’m not sure if that’s directed to me or someone else, because you’re switching from 2nd to 3rd person in your comment.

      Sterilizing all people on welfare will not solve the problem; that’s a preposterous solution fueled by hatred of the poor and anger.
