"Employees at McDonald's restaurants in the metro will walk off the job, protesting for a $15 minimum wage. The demonstration is part of a nationwide protest for a livable wage."

The strike is staring with McDonald's worker but invites supporters from throughout the workforce . . . Except, of course, the growing number of kiosk and robot workers replacing these often complaining laborers.

Give it time.

A.I. is coming along more quickly than most expect and robots will soon want more benefits too.

The focus here should be on a state wide election. Bullying the local businesses is a waste of time. Their corporate management won't let them increase wages without any requirement from the State. I wonder why the protests don't inform their leaders about the real world consequences of the higher wages, it'll mean a lot more people fired and fewer jobs overall.

Go ahead and walk off the job, dumbasses. They will find some Mexicans to do your job better than you do.

I would love it if they replaced the McDonald's workers with A.I. droids.
Nobody at McDonald's can speak English.
Nobody at McDonald's can get your order correct.
Nobody at McDonald's can say "Thanks for your business! Come back and see us!"
Nobody at McDonald's gives a rats ass about you or your food.
Nobody at McDonald's knows anything about 'CUSTOMER SERVICE" because most McDonald's managers are complete idiots.

8:41 & 9:20, McDonald’s is already replacing people with kiosk’s. This is what you get when when demand an outrageous pay hike for doing mindless work.

Even though I have a kid in the food industry who wants $15 and gets so angry when I tell him it's not going to happen because he will have to come into Kansas to get a job, or ride a bus out to Edgerton Ks to get work he supports this.
I can't make him understand the way the economy works. If a KCMO McDonalds isn't profitable it closes and a new one opens in KCK or prairie Village that will be profitable. More empty restaurant buildings will be available soon. I guess the homeless will live there.

^^^ So when is the city council going to give their salary back? They work one day a week and get paid 71,000 a year.

@9:27 has a simplistic view of work, which is why CEOs make 1000s of time what everyone else in a company does.

It's not economics, it's wage theft.

@9:26AM Stop going to McDonald's you fat fuck! I bet you're one of those geezers who gathers every morning for your senior citizen discount on coffee, and spends 3 hours sitting there with the other geezers aren't you? Maybe spend some real money then people MIGHT be nice to you.

AI will undoubtedly put them out of a job. It's slowly happening now and will catch them by surprise when businesses get it all ironed out. AI works slowly along side of us to assist until it fully takes over. It's always under the guise (well, it will free you up to do other things).

Eat shit?

Not me. I quit those Soylent green places. No "mystery meat" for me. If it's not an obviously recognizable piece of fish, chicken, fruit, vegetable, grain, and such--like Dana Carvey (GWHBush) said, "NOT GONNA DO IT. WOULDN'T BE PRUDENT."

Let them strike! It might save your life.

McDonalds food is fucking poison.

And the staff at the Raytown Mickie D's can NEVER get an order right...funny how they always leave things OUT but never accidentally put something EXTRA in.

Scammers.

If we can get the geezers out of the McDonald's, the profits will surly go up, as they will be able to sell more to paying customers. Effectively hiring more workers to meet the increased demand.

If I have to pay $15 per hour, I’m not going to continue to employ someone who walked off the job. I can pick from a better pool of candidates who wouldn’t apply for any job that paid $8 per hour.

1:19, I hope that you aren't really an employer.

Many people have died for the "right to strike".

I thought that was settled.

That was then and this is now 1:30 plus we are talking burger flippers not real working men.

"real working men"

Every man who has a job is a real working man.

Why don't you people tell the truth: You oppose raising the minimum wage because you think that most poor people are black & you hate blacks because they used to be your slaves.

America will never be a great country until the white men get over this sour grapes.

Anonymous said...

The reason we use the phrase Native American is because white men want to pretend that they are Americans. The other peoples of the Americas really resent this appropriation. All of our problems stem from the fact that you Europeans don't belong here. You treat your former slaves like shit, & you treat Latinos as if they are the foreigners. You seem to be genetically racist, while calling any attempt by the non-whites to empower themselves as racist. Go back to Europe, where you belong. You are the illegal immigrants, here.

Now we've heard from the noble red man! All anybody has to do is drive through Tuba City or Kayeta on a Friday or Saturday night if you want a really good example of the red man left his own devices. You got probably the best deal of any conquered people in history- set aside land, government checks and the freedom to have your own nation.

I supposed to walk off the job you have to actually show up for work, so McDonald's may see a improvement in production as a result of this so-called strike . You can bet your ass anyone working for me who tries that will have a pink slip in their back pocket on the way out the door to pick up a sign. This is not a sheltered workshop and nobody owes you a job.

What people fail to understand is that just raising the wage of say a McDonald's employee is not the main factor in the overall costs of things it's when you factor all the increases that will be seen from the suppliers who have to pay all their employees more who do any work for McDonalds. It's that old trickle down effect that will drive up the costs and make you the consumer pay royaling for that fast food. In the end people will cut back on their eating habits and businesses will go out of business or lay workers off.

How many of you readers in here have had jobs where they raised your salary by 75 to 100 % over night?

@3:00PM You don't have to worry about anyone working for you, because you're a broke bastard who is likely out of work your damn self! I seriously doubt many business owners or CEO's are scouring the blogs of TKC at 3:00PM on a Monday afternoon. You're likely a retired pants-shitter with no family, or an unemployed shit-eating goon. Go fuck yourself dummy.

from todays American Indian news...


William Mendoza, 42, the former executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education, stepped down after he was arrested and charged with attempted voyeurism in November, 2016, for the vile acts.

Mendoza, who earned $140,000 a year as a policy advisor in Obama's White House, tried to take photos and videos up women's skirts at least four times on his government-issued iPhones in July 2016 without their consent.

He was also caught looking at footage, apparently filmed in secret, of a woman in her underwear getting changed in a dressing room. It is not known if he recorded the video himself.

When he took the indecent photos, he was supposed to be at work and was using a travel card funded by the taxpayer, according to documents obtained by DailyMail.com through a Freedom of Information Act request
