People who are complaining about a higher wage for fast food employees being too much would do well to remember that these jobs are no longer held primarily by high school kids earning spending money, but increasingly by people trying to survive, pay bills, and raise children. Thats the reality of the economy we live in right now, and one can't always just run out, try harder, and get another job. On top of that, all you taxpayers are subsidizing the fast food industry to pay their workers low wages in the form of food stamps, medical insurance, and other benefits. You pay for McDonalds greed. It's really that simple. So, instead of sitting on the comments section of City Newspaper telling fast food workers to work harder at life, or defending wealthy franchisees who need no defense...perhaps you should join these brave workers on the picket line next time. And there will be a next time.
