Fast-food protests under way

NEW YORK (AP) - Fast-food protests are underway today in cities including New York, Chicago and Detroit, with organizers expecting the biggest national walkouts yet in a demand for higher wages. Similar protests organized by unions and community groups over the past several months have brought considerable media attention to a staple of the fast-food industry - the so-called “McJobs” that are known for their low pay and limited prospects. But it’s not clear what impact, if any, they will have on business.

If they did get the $15/hour, they'd likely find themselves unemployed because better-qualified people would find it more worth their while to work there. So these protesters would go from $7.25/hour to $0/hour.

Be careful what you wish for.....
