Anyone walking out on their job or preventing customers from getting their food should be fired on the spot. THere are 30 Million unemployed in this country. I'm sure they could be replaced in a couple hours.

Ironic. The very people who are supposedly demonstrating for higher wages are the same people who by and large PATRONIZE places like BK, MacDonalds, Wal-Mart, etc. So their wages go up, and the prices they have to pay go up at the same time. Who wins?

Hate to say this folks, but a minimum wage for entry level workers is going to make the unemployment rate among teens extremely high. For the others $15/hr is a little much for flipping burgers. Get your experience and move up in the world. A higher minimum wage would make people lazier than they already are. When was the last time you got exceptional service as a fast food joint!!
