Fast food workers go on strikeAs Salon first reported, the fast food effort went public last November, with a strike by about 200 employees of various chains in New York City. Over the past four months, that walkout has been followed by similar work stoppages in five other cities, and a second New York City strike roughly twice as large. Each of those strikes has been backed by the Service Employees International Union and local allies, and each has shared the same demands: a raise to $15 per hour, and the chance to form a union without intimidation by management. This week’s strikes will include five of those six cities – New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, and Milwaukee- and two new ones: Kansas City and Flint, Mich. (A spokesperson for the campaign in Seattle, where workers struck in May, told Salon to expect “a series of escalating direct actions” there this week.)

Weren’t they surprised when they came back and found their position had been taken by recent college graduates with student loans to pay back! Here’s a suggestion, guys. Next time you want to take time to strike, use that time to learn some useful job skills, instead. That way, when you apply for a job that pays well, you can have something on your resume other than “I know when the fries are done”.

200 fast food workers in NYC? Bet that many fail to show up for their shift each hour of the day.
Did remind me of one of the funnier clips on YouTube

Many of our local dirt balls eat nothing but McDonalds and Taco Bell for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If these places go on strike where will these poor people eat?
