Fast food workers vow civil disobedience
Associated Press, by Staff

VILLA PARK, Ill. — Fast food workers from across the country have voted in suburban Chicago to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation by including civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting. Industry officials say a $15 wage would hurt job creation, and that the solution is more education and

This could bring about Mooch´s healthy eating designs faster than anything I can think of.

In-N-Out in our area has been paying $10/hour for some time now. Good luck trying to stir their employees up. I´ve heard they love working for that company.

1300 people, and I doubt all of them work fast food, is not much of a turnout. All I can advise is since it is Chicago, it would be best to stay together, especially if you are an out of towner.

If you don´t want to work for whatever McDonalds pays, quit and find a better job!

If you cannot ´live´ on what they are paying, how did you get to Chicago, and what did you live on there? Who paid your hotel?

Shouldn´t you better have saved your money?

I vow to flip off fast food workers engaged in civil disobedience. These people need a crash course in reality: you work, you get paid. You don´t work, you don´t get paid. You don´t get paid, you starve to death.

Here´s what these employees don´t GET about fast-food workers: Your fast food job is a stepping stone. You shouldn´t be there all that long. You learn things like showing up. On time. With a service attitude, whether you like it or not. You learn pleasing the customer is paramount. You learn how to dress, how to speak, how to serve. For this - we will pay your employer (employER) money for the product or service that YOU (the employEE)provide. When, and only when - you learn these basic steps, can you then go on to OTHER jobs that pay more. In short - you have to EARN the higher level of pay by being a better, more valued employABLE worker. When you leave, you make room for the next unskilled dope to fill your vacancy. Your very first, out-of-the-shoot job is not your career. Not because YOU want it to be, but because the EMPLOYER does not NEED fast-food careerists. There are too many unskilled dopes to employ at much lower wages. Obama is importing them by the tens of thousands every month.

I haven´t eaten fast food in years and if you want to do something simple for better health, avoid them also.
Watch for this happening elsewhere if the LSM falls "mean corporate rich white folks" boloney. Also, be ready (armed) if the lair-in-chief gets impeached there will be full scale riots.

It appears as though SEIU workers do not understand the concept of "value."

1. Workers should expect that they are paid in relation to the value they provide to the employer. If you need more pay you need to find a way to provide more value to your employer. It´s really quite simple.

2. Customers should expect that the product they purchase is priced in relation to the value of the product. If the employers´ cost of labor increases but the quantity and/or quality of their product and/or service stay the same they will likely lose customers. No customers, no jobs. It´s really quite simple.

3. If the cost of labor rises to the point that the cost of automation becomes attractive, employers would likely automate to manage their costs. More automation, fewer jobs. It´s really quite simple.

The SEIU and their prospective new members are attempting to coerce current fast-food establishments to increase what they pay their employees. Since they know what fast-food employees should be paid, I suggest that they start their own fast-food establishment and pay their employees whatever they wish. If they can successfully compete for customers they win. It´s really quite simple.

If you are educated and experienced enough to have a job paying $15 or $20 an hour, you have a job paying $15 or $20 an hour.

If you are working fast food, and that is the best job you can get, then that really is the best job you can get.

If they raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, you are either going to lose your job to automation, or you are going to lose it to a better educated and experienced worker who wants the easy work that is fast food that still pays $15 an hour.

Rather than protest, use your time to take some classes to increase you education. Work on your speaking skills so that you don´t sound like an uneducated hick. Work on your work ethic so that you impress your boss with your skills. Otherwise, enjoy the unemployment and welfare that will be the best you can do the rest of your life.

These lowly workers are going to block the entrances to restaurants nationwide (with the unions brainwashing them)?
This will be FUN!!! Won´t that be a violation of the RICO laws? It´s an inter-state plan to interrupt the business at these restaurants.
Remember about 20 years ago with the Pro-Life protesters outside the abortion clinics? The federal gov´t was threatening them with violating the RICO laws.
Summary: these fast food workers are useful idiots. (doubtful that the unions will provide bail money)

Unions are masters of extortion. They always seek gain for their members at EVERYONE ELSE´S EXPENSE. Who thinks a $15 an hour wage will add better service for a meal? Who will ultimately pay that extra amount? So, we´ll be paying more for nothing more, so that someone else can receive money that has not been earned. Want more money? Educate yourself for a better job. Not in the mood? Take a long walk off a short pier and take your union THUGS with you.

(Video) Republican Thom Tillis, running for Senate in the state that invented NASCAR, is getting a boost from a racing legend in a new ad. Former NASCAR driver Richard Petty endorsed Tillis in a new television spot from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a major backer of Tillis´s bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan in North Carolina. "In racing and in life, there´s always a leader, someone who knows how to get to the finish line, who makes the tough decisions," Petty says in the ad, as he stands beside a race car.

This is the moment a group of terrified hikers were forced to seek shelter in a small cabin after a Japanese volcano erupted without warning, resulting in the death of at least 36 people. The petrified hikers, who can be seen huddling in their partially submerged sanctuary, were lucky to escape with their lives after Mount Ontake erupted suddenly on Saturday, raining furnace-hot ash and stones on hundreds of weekend visitors. At least 36 people are known to have died – some buried alive. And rescuers fear they have yet to find the remains of many more who were smothered

The stage, drapes, and sound system for an 18-minute speech by President Barack Obama cost taxpayers nearly $100,000. “Elite Productions,” the go-to company for prominent Democratic politicians such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, put on the set for Obama’s speech to troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., on Sept. 17. The company provided “stage, drapery, and audio/visual equipment,” according to a contract document made public by the Air Force last week. The government paid the company $94,360 for a speech that lasted from 12:04 p.m. to 12:22 p.m., at a cost of approximately $5,242.22

Imagine you consult an attorney with an important case. He says, “I´ll accept your case, but I have to tell you at the start, I don´t respect you. In fact, you´re a coward.” The Obama administration entrusted the most important cases of our nation to an attorney general who held the people he was hired to represent in contempt. Presidential administrations have mottos. Theodore Roosevelt spoke softly but carried a big stick; John Kennedy pointed to new frontiers and self-sacrifice; Lyndon Johnson spoke of a great society.

From Friday to Monday, ABC ignored the contentious exchange and Earnest´s doubling down.

Instead, it was left to a competitor, Fox News, to highlight Karl´s battle with Earnest. On Friday´s On the Record, Greta Van Susteren played a clip of the

Afghanistan´s new government plans to sign a strategic agreement Tuesday with the United States that would allow for approximately 10,000 U.S. troops to remain in the country after the U.S.-led NATO coalition’s mandate expires in December. U.S. officials say the extended troop presence is needed to continue training Afghanistan’s 350,000 soldiers and police, and to conduct counter-terrorism operations. The pact – which outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai refused to sign in his final months in office, fueling tensions with Washington – is expected to be signed by U.S. Ambassador James Cunningham and a senior member of the Afghan government.

While that headline suggested to viewers that Obama was taking responsibility for the failure, a soundbite ran of the President distancing himself from blame: "I think they underestimated what had been taking place

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground
