Deal Price: News
foxnews.com offers Fast-food Workers to Walkout in 7 Cities for News.
Workers at the nation’s best known fast-food restaurants in seven cities across America are planning to walk off the job Monday to protest what they say are wages that are too low to live on.

The Washington Post reports that the protests will take place in New York City, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Flint, Mich., involving workers at McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC. Some employees at stores including Dollar Tree, Macy's and Victoria's Secret are also expected to join the protesters in several cities.

The workers are calling for wages of $15 per hour, more than double New York's current minimum wage of $7.25.

I think they deserve more than $7.25 but NOT $15 an hour,that's ridiculous.

@xptrish In todays times, 15.00 still isn't enough!!. If min wage would have kept up with the inflation years, we would be at around 22.00 an hour!. Try paying 1200.00 rent on a 15.00 an hour salary!. It would still be rough to manage all your bills! so imagine 7.25 an hour. The ppl have been taken advantage of and it's time we stop this!.

You have to also understand that these are unskilled workers and the pay rate generally reflects this,but again I do think they deserve more than minimum. People with degrees can't even walk into. Job making $15 an hour.
How these people survive I have no idea! I give them a lot of credit.
