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?

CEOs.

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.

Fast Food = Romaine Lettuce Boats

Who says fast food has to be bad? I’m here to tell you it can be fresh, crisp, and tasty with sweet crunchy omega-3 tuna-fishing delightfulness.

Got some romaine lettuce loitering in your fridge? Red or green leaf lettuce, even large spinach leaves will also do in a pinch.

How about a can of tuna? My tinned tuna of choice comes by way of the Genova brand. It has nothing but tuna, olive oil and sea salt inside the metal container. It also comes with water sans olive oil. There is none of that mysterious “vegetable broth” of unknown origins soaking into shredded tuna strands with obnoxious filler soy on the side. Pry open a can of Genova tuna and discover solid hunks of tuna, the likes of which is generally an unknown ingredient in what often passes itself off in cans of tuna processed by American food companies. If anyone knows of another brand offering a similar or better quality of affordable tuna-fish, I am all eyes and ears for that intel.

Instead of mayo haul out some plain or vanilla flavored yogurt. I generally spoon and spread some of Dannon’s All Natural Vanilla across the lettuce leaves. I like this yogurt because it has ONLY four ingredients–milk, sugar, vanilla and pectin. I know what those things are. I can pronounce each and every one of them. None of them pose an allergy threat to my physical health and well-being. My sincere thanks to Dannon for a non-soy, non artificially sweetened yogurt product.

After you’ve painted the romaine with a thick coat of creamy fresh yogurt, fork some tuna down along the center. The quantities are entirely up to you. I’m just here sharing my ingredients of choice.

Last, but not least, toss several sweet pickle midgets along the center line.  If you’re not in a rush you might dice them up and mix them with the tuna and yogurt. But this is not a necessary step for your taste-buds’ happy happy joy joy meal time. The beauty of these lettuce boats is the quickness with which you can sling the yogurt, tuna and pickles into the crisp green boats, fold them in half or roll them if you’re so inclined. If all the ingredients are at home and at hand, you’ve got a meal in five minutes or less. It all depends on how fast your hands make way.

YUM!

bon appetit

 

What are you doing on August 29, “Low Pay Is Not Okay” Day? Forget the burgers and fries cuz fast food ain’t gonna fly.

1912 to 2013 and the issues are rising again like bread and roses

Yeast and water

Soil and sun

Bread and Roses

Women and men to the streets again

Will this cycle never be done?

They’re not asking for your mansions, your jets, your yachts, your limos, your Rolex watches or you pearls

They’re asking for food, heat, housing and flowers.

Why do you have a problem with that?

Without workers there would be nothing made anywhere, anytime, anyhow.

Wait, this is America–the land of the outsourced company to other lands of  work till you’re dead opportunities.

Let’s outsource those burgers and fries and see how the toilet flushes then.

**

Why do those who profit most refuse to support those who make the profit possible?

If you cleared $ 5.5 Billion in profit what would you do with it?

Yeah, everyone has got to eat. What if you couldn’t get fast food for eight weeks straight anywhere? Would you be OVER the fast food addiction?

Low Pay is NOT okay!   http://lowpayisnotok.org/about-us/

There is a petition to sign for support. http://lowpayisnotok.org/home-0819/

The Bread and Roses Strike of 1912 began in January in Lawrence, Massachusetts when textile factory workers walked off the job and into the streets for weeks and weeks.  History –> http://breadandrosescentennial.org/node/77
