[quote:Anonymous Coward 1328514:MV8yMDY2NjI2XzM0Nzc3Nzc4X0QzNzcxRTYz] [quote:Anonymous Coward 4428411:MV8yMDY2NjI2XzM0Nzc3NTQ1Xzg1NkZFNTcz] Honestly, I think that with the way the American people are being treated I wouldn't be surprised if there is a resurgence of unions. Corporate executives are taking advantage of people simply because they know we have no other choice. I love it when the mouthpieces of the elite and rich come into threads like these and say "you think that these people should make a livable wage? They have no skills!" Do they work? Are they serving people, including yourself? Would you want to do the job? I can understand people who say that Unions are a bad thing, because when they become corrupted they ARE. When they are a force for the workers and not for the Mafia or other organized crime I'd say that they are a force for good. Unions need to also be able to accept that certain things, such as pensions, are no longer viable. Living wages, though, certainly should be on the table! [/quote] Yep, just like corrupt government. When they're not corrupt, they're good. It looks like both have passed the point of no return. Union Busting means the "UNITED" states too. [/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..."
