Fast Food Workers To Stage A One Day Walk-Out

McDonald's Workers, Activists Protest McDonald's Labor Practices

For the umpteenth time, workers at McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King and other major fast food restaurants will stage a work protest in support of raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

On Thursday, May 15, employees in as many as 150 cities nationwide will participate in a walk-out that’s part of a campaign to unionize fast food franchises and raise wages to $15 an hour.

From Taco Bell, Wendy’s and Domino’s Pizza, the protest hopes to persuade employers that the minimum wage currently is too low. Do you believe if an employee walked off the job to protest, new hires could be brought in?

Is it fair to pay an employee in training the same amount of money an experienced worker is making? Ultimately, when minimum wages rise, so do consumer prices. Are you more in favor of a policy that gives automatic raises, rather than a minimum wage increase to $15 an hour?
