[quote:Anonymous Coward 28762252:MV8yMDY2NjI2XzM0Nzc1MjAyX0QwMjE2QkRB] [quote:JohnC 19603600:MV8yMDY2NjI2XzM0Nzc0MjczXzUwREJBQUVF] I never understood why some professions have unions and others don't. Mailmen have a union. Fast food workers don't. Working at McDonald's is a much more demanding job. [/quote] Some workers form unions. Others do not. McDonalds has always (until recently) been a teenager's job. Part time, low wage. Kids got a little pocket money and a reference with a little education into how a real business operates. They worked summers, maybe after school a few days a week. They didn't need much money. When I was in HS kids who needed more money found higher paying work. I earned more than double a McDonalds wage as a Pizza Hut waitress. Now that adult men and women have to take what jobs there are, to support themselves and their families, they are going to demand responsible adult wages. They have to. Mail delivery has always been an adult only job. Its done during the day. It requires physical strength and adult judgement. [/quote]

"McDonald's, KFC, Burger King workers protest in NYC
"...several protests at different locations in the city, including Times Square and the Fulton Street Mall in Brooklyn. Workers from McDonald's, Burger King, and Yum Brand -run restaurants KFC and Taco Bell are expected to join.
Workers say they are asking for a pay raise to $15 an hour and the right to form a union. Currently, the median pay for the nearly 50,000 fast food workers in New York City is $9 an hour..."
