[/quote] Yeah, the arrogance of corporations dictating you and your government how to behave. Telling you that you have no rights, only duties. Telling you that you don't deserve dignity if you don't have a university degree. Telling that if you can't accept to be a slave, you deserve to starve. And you call yourself a democracy :rofl: [/quote] If you agree to give up your God-given rights to adhere to a private company's policy, that is your decision. Ironically, the people without degrees who chose a trade instead are extremely well off as they possess no college debt and some are even making 6-figure salaries. Slavery is having an owner who pays you nothing for your labor. Having a job is optional, and you are given money in exchange. You have a choice as to what type of job you apply for, and therefore the income level you seek. The jobs are disappearing because we no longer have true Capitalism. As far as starving Americans, have you noticed how fat most of us are? The poorest ones being the biggest. I'm not saying that's a good thing, but starvation is just not accurate. And no, we do't call ourselves a democracy. We're a constitutional republic that has forgotten its founding principles. [/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..."
