    I want a new BMW, even though I will never graduate from high school!

    Equal outcomes, not equal opportunities!

    He doesn’t look 28 years old and supporting a family.

    I can’t wait for all these clowns to get fired for not showing up to work and get replaced by people who’d be happy just to have a job right now.
    If you don’t like it, quit.

    You know what “assume” means? You’ve just defined it.

    People who work at minimum wage should not be making babies.

    If store owners pay $15.00 an hour to staff they would have to raise the price of their product. Have you checked the price of fast food, it is not cheap.

    “People who work at minimum wage should not be making babies…”

    Why keep ’em ignorant of birth control then, you RepubliCons in the audience?

    I wonder if McCoy was ever forced to try to live, let alone feed his family, on minimum wage. What a disgusting, mean-spirited cartoon, to make jest of other people’s crippling poverty.

    1) You’ve got the wrong kind of plumbing.
    2) Not true, since labor is the highest cost item that goes into fast food.
    3) I’m not cheap-a$$. I tip 20%. And do not assume what others tip. Also, I’ve been working for 40+ years, and I started out at a min-wage job – cleaning parts with acid in a manufacturing plant. By the time I was on my own (i.e., not living with my parents), I was earning way more than the minimum wage.

    Kids are too buy playing WoW and smoking funny cigarettes to realize that the world really owes them nothing. By that time, they’re screwed.

    This was not just a bunch of fast food workers who walked out of their jobs to protest. Take a look at all the profesionally printed signs and banners they are holding up. Just like every other protest over the last decade or so there was a lot of money behind it.
    These fast food workers need to realize that the places they work are owned by independent businessmen, who are not the millionaires they have been made out to be.

    How can doubling the wages only result in 22 cents, Does that mean if they paid em half, it would go done by 11 cents. You are crazy. Wages account for far more then 22 cents of the overhead of a owner.

    @realthog

    Minimum wage was never meant to “feed a family.” Minimum wage was to start, then you moved up the food chain. If you stayed there something is wrong with you. I made min wage in ’66, $3.35 an hour, and I was in a union, I got a raise when min wage went up. I was still making more than my high school classmates.

    The turn over rate at Micky D’s is 1000% They train you to do the job knowing full well you will be replaced shortly, If you have any get up and go. Min wage is entry level, meaning you can show up to work 4 out of 5 days in a row.

    @Brutatowski

    Even if the owners are, they are working with borrowed money, and how did the get to own a fast food franchise? By hiring dumb people to work for them. Power to the owners. You don’t like what you make, get a better job, after you get a better education. This is a foreign concept to a min wage worker.

    " I made min wage in ’66, $3.35 an hour,…"

    Minimum wage was $1.25 per hr in 1966.

    “My next door neighbor is a PhD and can’t find suitable work”

    You didn’t mention what field your neighbor’s phd was in. There are any number of people out there that got their phd in an area that has little application in the work-a-day world. Many of them are victims of their own interests and ignore the relevancy of their knowledge or the availability of jobs in their field of study that will earn them a living. It is good to see that your neighbor is not so arrogant as to take no job that is below his dignity. I wish him the best of luck.
