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.

Which part of "entry level job" don't these people understand? If you are using your job at McDonalds to support your family you have some serious issues. These jobs are for high school/college students to make some cash. It's NOT a career! GEEEEEZ!

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.....

At $15/hour, there would be reduced working hours and layoffs to compensate for the increase...
