Fast-food workers in 30 countries participate in biggest food strike in history

Today will mark the largest fast food strike ever, spreading far beyond U.S. borders. Organizers expect to rally in more than 150 U.S. cities and in cities in over 30 different countries. Fast Food Forward, a New York-based labor group, and the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Association (IUF) have joined forces to help orchestrate the fast food employee walk-off. The goal of a global call to action is to usher in change, so that this $200 billion industry stops exploiting their employees with low wages and preventing them from unionizing.

!!!!! Scum

Higher wages mean higher priced products which means patrons take their business elsewhere which means McDonald’s will cut jobs to keep from closing their business.

I can’t wait for this experiment to fail.

$15? Registered nurses don’t even make that much. You want a job that pays enough to raise a family? Go back to school and become a doctor - don’t be the guy that asks if I’d like fries with that.

You know, if people actually knew how economics worked and used their brains, then feel-good do-something-ism like this would be a lot less common.

Higher employment costs for companies have to be covered somehow to keep he business afloat, so product prices go up to compensate.  Seriously, it’s the biggest no-brainer.

Lol if you strike for $15 working at McDonalds they’ll just fire you and hire someone else for minimum wage
