They are striking their way out of jobs. For every striker, there are 100s of people waiting to take their place. Do they really think we will pay $4 or $5 for an order of French fries? After all, most fast foods aren't at amusement parks, where they get away with it.

Then, there are the franchise owners who don't make millions and are lucky to earn $50 per year. Many don't make that. Some of the employees will be making as much as the owners. The only groups to make out are the unions, who will take a good chunk of that $15 per hour if they can.

It's remarkable the heartfelt outpouring of support for Chik Fila compared to the union screwball axis astro turf

The last time these idiots got together to call a strike for $15 an hour, the response was underwhelming and they attracted little (if any) sympathy that I am aware of. 

And if you are 23 years old, and the best you can find to do for yourself is 20 hours a week at fast food, that says more about you than your employer....
