Fast Food Workers Strike today! Solidarity! Greedy CEO Cats have FATTEST paychecks.

In Solidarity

While I am not a fan of fast food– I am a supporter of workers earning a living wage and their right to unionize.

Exploitation is Exploitation is Exploitation.

Greed is Greed.

Without the workers there would be NO fast food.

Who makes your burger and fries?

Not the rich CEOs who refuse to share the billions in  profits with the people who do the work.

Who makes $9,220 per hour?


Some fast food workers  LIVE on that amount of money for an entire year while working FULL time.

Finance Online


Can a CEO flame broil a burger or anything else? Would they ever work for the wages they pay their employees? I doubt it.

    wow, you have it much worse than in Australia – we have a minimum wage for the entire workforce and it goes up periodically and is decided at a National level – mind you, the conservatives would have it got rid of if they could (we also have penalty rates for weekend work and after normal hours work – and they are trying to get rid of that entitlement too) – yet, the people are leaving unions at a great rate – we don’t know how good we have it half the time in Australia – good luck with increasing the minimum wage in the USA 🙂

      Good luck?
      Good Greed is what this is about. It’s disgusting how the rich enjoy keeping the poor poor and then blaming their poverty on their lack of ambition and ability. This is a disturbingly dysfunctional society we Americans live in. And lots of people would like to keep it that way.
      We’re scary sick.
      HI. Thanks for stopping by and commenting from the Land Down Under.

    The way money circulates through our system is a tragedy. I’m in complete sympathy with the striking workers who want an increase in the minimum wage. I read an account about a mother of four working at a McDonald’s in South Carolina that reported after ten years service was still making $7.35 an hour. Maybe once upon a time these fast food establishments were starter jobs for teenagers, but no longer and McDonald’s among others knows that. The inequality created when money is hoarded at the top should be getting more obvious all the time and slowly is becoming more of a political issue.

      I agree completely, artistatexito. What’s the point of doing a job that does NOT allow you to support yourself and a family while there is PLENTY of money to go around for everyone.
      OOOps that reminds me, there’s also plenty of food for everyone on the fraking planet –yet there is starvation–even in America–while others throw away food. Are we all fracked or what?
      Hi and thanks for commenting. Much appreciate the effort.
