"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..."

Bussed in UNION thugs.....AGAIN.


Just think....they want McDonalds to pay them $15.00 (up from the 7.50-9.50) they pay them now.


Guess what happens to McDonalds food prices?
....then guess what happens to their ENTIRE business as a result when people stop buying due to high prices?


F*cking Socialists.

Guess the Commie pawns never got the memo that fast food jobs are typically layovers for high school, college, or between-job employees. McDonald's is NOT a career path! At least, not in the country I grew up in.

As that franchise owner....if ANY of those union protesting freaks were from my store....I'd make sure they had no job when they walked back in.

I guess no one told them that they need to JOIN the Union ($1000+), AND pay union dues, EVEN if part time, and then the union can refuse to help if the worker gets in a dispute with a boss, AND can force workers to make contributions to political candidates the worker might NOT WANT to support!!

I recall a guy from the truckers' union on the radio complaining about the Mexican trucks on the roads. "The safety is bad! You're all gonna die!"

When they opened up the phone lines, person after person called in and handed him his ass. It was funny.

F*cking Socialists."

Labor is not the only expense. So the prices would not go up so much as you might think and the employees will be doing a bit better.

Price increases that you do see in the fast food arena may also be a boon to locally owned small scale dining establishments.



For a realistic look at how much labor costs impact a restaurants and other business check out these sources:

and the straightdope forums on specifics.
