The workers in New York City are demanding the ability to form unions and to be paid at least $15 an hour. Currently, the median wage for food service or food preparation worker is $8.90 an hour in New York City, according to the New York State Department of Labor, the lowest of any occupation.
I put strike in quotations because its not actually a strike since they're not unionized, but that was one of their demands.
But in all seriousness - fast food isn't supposed to be a job for 40-somethings to raise a family on. It's for teenagers and stoners to buy playstation games and pot. If you hate your job - you have the ability to find another in the wonderful capitalistic system that has been provided for you. But if you decide to keep going from fast food job to fast food job all of your life and don't get on the ball of actually learning a viable skill or trade besides dropping fries in grease, then tough shite guy. You made your own life decisions, now deal with it.
