Ok, not to sound cruel, but they made their life by screwing around...
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

Fast food restaurant were set up to hire young people, or to supplement the spouse's income. Even now, if people work hard enough, they are most likely eligible for raises and promotions. With that said, a ff franchise owner cannot afford to pay $15 per hour, or even $10.

Most of the workers who have children are on some kind of welfare program such as WIC or Food Stamps, along with getting reduced house rent and utilities. If they were get what they want, they would be worse off, and so would everyone. I sure as heck won't pay $6 for a burger that is not a burger!

SEIU tells them what to say, and they say it.
Meanwhile, there are innumerable local charities providing shoes to those who (truly) can't afford them for their children.
FWIW, I know a minimum wage-earning  fellow who just replaced his old 36" TV with a brand new 48" model. Shoes are not a priority item for him. If he needs shoes, I suspect he gets them at the Dollar Store, the Salvation Army or some such discount store. The options are there.

Only in America do the poor have the latest iPhone, a new 60+ inch LCD/LED TV, and rims on their SUV which cost more than the vehicle.

I do see a lot of jobs getting away if the minimum wage goes up. They are being used by the unions.
