Fast-food workers "strike"

Original post made by Joe, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Dec 7, 2013

This week, fast-food workers in 100 cities nationwide participated in a one-day "strike" to show support for their demand of a doubling of wages. The organizers of the rallies are groups like Fast Food Forward and Fight for 15. Funding for these groups is provided by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

If union workers were only smart enough to see their 'leadership' is leading them down a path to slaughter. Look at Detroit....years of union bosses paying off politicians to approve unrealistic sweetheart pension deals that will now be either renegotiated or forfeited. It's a lie to claim that union drones didn't know that the payoffs they thought they were going to receive we're not sustainable. It's finally caught up to them and now the whining's not 'fair'. Lol.

Fast food workers are just another type of pawn the union thugs are attempting to control. It's sad that they treat people so poorly just to empower the 'brotherhood' (emphasis on the hood)
