Kansas City fast-food workers demand $15 minimum wage and union

A steady line of about 70 cars, filled with fast-food workers from Kansas City, their family members and supporters, packed the parking lot and streets in front of the McDonald's on Van Brunt Boulevard, honking and waving signs in support of a $15 minimum wage and a fast-food workers union.

Don’t worry. Illegal alien caravans vans are on the way. If you truly want more wages, then you better fight that instead
But democrats care about you, right?

The SEIU is going to cost hundreds in Kansas City their jobs all together. What good is it to get a $15 minimum wage if the businesses can't support it? Why don't they go for better education or more people in trade schools and then they will make twice what the SEIU is trying to get that will just run the smaller businesses out of business? The SEIU only gets the lowest paid workers, cooks, janitors, maids, etc. They don't help people thay suck off dues to keep the SEIU alive, not their members.

They can get the 15 dollars an hour but they will lose their jobs and have less places to choose from to work.. BTW since when have black people done a good job? They can't even get an order right and the city workers sleep in their trucks.

What in the world do they think will happen? With every action there is a reaction. Raise the wages types of workers and that cost gets passed on to the consumer. The owners of a business are in business to make money, not to give jobs or benefits to people. They will either cut staff or raise their prices making it more difficult for the lower-end wage-earner to provide for their family. You are already paying almost $9 for a fast food meal I'm prepared to pay at least $12 for the same meal if the $15 an hour passes

"...the city workers sleep in their trucks." Well you don't want them driving around drunk, do you?

The word "demand" results in instant dismissal of any issue.

All those fools are doing is working themselves out of a job. The payroll pool doesn't magically grow. If they get their coveted $15 per hour to fuck up your drive thru or counter order there will just be fewer workers and more kiosks. Try working as hard to get a better job as you do about whining for more for entry level you lazy slobs!

McDonalds franchise business owners make upwards of 6 figures, they can afford to increase employees pay, but you continue to pick on the help.

Hamburgler said...

Hey dumbass! 10:39... the franchisees put up a large amount of cash or Capital to get a franchise. They were not given to them by the hamburger clown. They had to work hard they had to save their money and they're investing in a business that has a tremendous turnover of the help. We are not in business to provide jobs or benefits. We provide those as incentive to get the worker. They are in it to make money which is why McDonalds is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol of McD. Right now a share of stock is trading at $213.56 a share. People have invested their money into the corporation via stock market... the workers do not control the company each employee is a spoke in the wheel the owner makes the wheel go round and round.. a large amount a franchise owners in the region are African American. Save your money buy a franchise and then you can make six figures. Until then stop complaining about those who provide jobs.. if you think it's such an easy job go ask Reverend Cleaver about how a car wash functions. When are you owned it he offered minimum wage and no benefits. You can really see a person's heart when they own something. Now run off and scold cleaver for not providing enough economic or benefit packages to his employees. By the way he sold that car wash for almost 20 times what he paid for it. Go look up who purchased his car wash and you will be very much surprised who is pulling his strings.

What used to be looked at as after school jobs for high school students now is considered a job that a person needs to be able to live off of. Well, that won't happen. Everything else will go up to match and whoever has those jobs will be no better off than they were to begin with. Like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey. Get nowhere fast.

This will just speed more automation at fast food businesses. It will be cheaper to install equipment to do many manual tasks. Less jobs.

^^Duh..er...derp..duh. Shut up fatty! If you have to pay $5.00 more for your value meals, it's worth it so people can make a decent living. I'd tell you to look up the quality of life in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and how much employees of fast food restaurants make over there, but you're too fucking dumb to comprehend it. Fuck off fatboy.

The caravan is coming. Even with 15 an hour they will be replaced by harder working folk.

Once again another union will ruin 100's of thousands of jobs. Let's assume a $15 an hour wage. Your fast food price will go up about 40%. And the same people bitching for this wage will complain about the high prices.

The lesser alternative will be to have more automation and no jobs!!

Congratulations to another union ruining their members!!

None look too skinny to me. Fed well I suppose. Yep, ^^ union is why a new truck cost 70K off the lot anymore. 'Merica

Employees get what they're worth and employers get what they pay for. If fast food employees were worth paying $15 an hour for they'd already be making $15 an hour. If you're a fast food employee who wants $15 and hour make yourself worth it to your employer.

Either way, keep the fucking government out of it.

Sure seems like capitalism is working out pretty well for most Americans.

More folks will just start fixing meals at home. No big deal. If you're too lazy to cook, than you'll just have to pay more at whatever fast food outlets still open. Adios MF

Come on Lickass and Clownsil, do it before your new gods the Sock Puppet and Whore do it so you can take credit. It will be the last nail in the tax base, but will make great headlines with the diverse.

A rim job and a half and half would get the hoe over $15.

No they won't because most of the people that eat that dogs hit are too fucking lazy and stupid to make a meal that isn't GMO laden and mold resistant

The reason we pick on the help at McDonald's is that they can't ever get an order right.

But they smoke $60 worth of crack an hour,the math dont work
