The strikers are in for a rude awakening. They might get their raises, but lose their jobs to technology. In some places, a person in India takes your orders.

I find it interesting that the one McDonald's they have so far succeeded in shutting down is in Detroit.  That pretty much says it all.

They also are too damned dumb to know the unions will take the pay increase and they are right back where they started; bottom line these are supposed to be jobs filled by high school kids, not people trying to support a family!

There's no one striking around here. I saw some of those pictures, and I wouldn't hire most of them.

I had a friend, who had no hs degree, get promotions at MD, and ended up being the manager. She made big bucks when she quit due to cancer.

Wow... wish you all got Glenn Beck TV (The Blaze) a black fast food resturant owner is filling in for Beck tonight and he is amazing!!!!  discussing small business and the effect of big business on small business and this union push to raise min wage and it's impact on small business... he said one thing many don't understand and he and other owners deal with daily - you hire people and they show up when they feel like it - if they have something better to do than work, they just don't show up, if you fire them you have to pay for that, too (unemployment insurance)...... he is talking about how these so called "Jim Crow" laws actually hurt blacks..........  l this man is great!  Fox needs him instead of Juan Williams!

It is not about the workers, it is about the unions heads getting their fat paychecks

The technology is available and all it needs is to be adopted here.

We used to have that technology in the 30s, and even up until the 70s.  It was called the Automat.


It definitely needs to be reintroduced.  Fast food was one of the forces that destroyed the old automated cafeterias; it would be the perfect irony if the new automated cafeterias destroyed fast food.

A bit of topic but not really. I was watching Mobsters on TV the other night. It is a weekly show telling the history of the mob. Anyhoo I didn't know that the mob was into unions.  Now in present time I see the lib/dem/mob is still into unions. I knew they were into it these days just didn't know it started way back in the 30's.
