I must have signed 6 petitions on this this morning, ranging from "workers, yo have my support" to "McDonald's don't fire them for striking." I suppose everyone also knows now they get paid with debit cards with fees that eat up the little money they do make.

“Hold the burgers, hold the fries, make worker wages supersize!”" I like that chant, very catchy. I hope something changes for the better for these workers.

As they should. Fast food work used to be for high school kids.

We'll need to boycott all those fast food places and show our support!

Would it really hurt a $200 billion industry to pay the workers who made it a $200 billion industry a living wage?
