Fast Food Workers Strike - May 15

I suppose Obama supports this. Then again, Michelle Obama is doing all she can to destroy the fast food industry as we know it.

I still think Obama would be for $15 an hour for fast food employees.

Fast food workers frustrated by low wages will participate in an organized, global walk-out in protest next week in as many as 150 cities, an advocacy group said Wednesday.

McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC employees in the United States will demand a raise to $15-an-hour next Thursday, joined internationally by fast food employees also seeking higher pay, in as many as 33 countries.

The strike’s announcement, at a New York City McDonald’s on Wednesday, came days after fast-food workers and union leaders from across the globe came together for the first time at a meeting organized by the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering and Tobacco Allied Workers’ Associations (IUF). The Manhattan-based group leading the protests, Fast Food Forward, has led a “Fight for 15″ campaign since 2012. The efforts have reportedly attracted fast food workers in Argentina, Morocco, Japan, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and the Dominican Republic, among others.
A worldwide fast food walkout?

Oh, no! What will I do?

This "strike" won't affect me at all.

Speaking as a former fast food worker myself, I don't think the skills required to perform the job rate a $15 an hour wage.

Why stop at $15? Why not "Fight for 50"?
