Here's a novel idea, if fast food workers want to earn more money, don't be a high school drop out, get an education, if you have a college degree have one that is worth a damn, .
Why worry about $15 an hour when those guys walk away with millions every year but that is ok ?Then, that way, you can get a job at, say, Goldman/Sachs and, no matter how much you suck or screw up, you not only get paid, you get a bonus even if it needs to be taken right out of the cash available for all the trash people below you.
God bless 'Merica!

ofc they do, it is called Socialsim ...
.. bring the CEO making millions down to $ 50k a yr, and raise all the dope smoking hippies up to $ 50k per yr
Back in the 80's, I remember there were small restaurants that served meals at a price comparable to McD's. Friendly's was one of them. I remember thinking "why am I sitting in this hard bench eating a burger in a box when for the same price, someone can wait on me and bring me dessert?". So my lunch break ceased to be fast food, because Friendly's or Big Boy's always had a seat for me.
May as well embrace it and try to make it work. At present, we are socialist but, we have 14% out of work, a flood of illegals willing to work for what is no longer remotely comparable to what it was 30 years ago in buying power and, to make it all worse, we have people like Hank Paulson, who made $500 million at GS, bailing out his pals.
and you care why ?
Via what mechanism(s)?
In the 'golden era' so many right wingers harken back to, the 1950's, executives made about 30:1.
We are WAY out of whack. With nearly 15% unemployed, cost of living, food, energy, so high, the wage strangling effect of uncontrolled immigration, the results speak for themselves.
We have more and more lifelong poor and we have more and more rich, all at the expense of the middle class. Recipe for disaster IF we all agree that the US's strength is that it is, was, a middle class driven nation.
ofc not, you won't get a generation of serfs if you give them skills
