Remember the "Rent is too damn high" guy that ran for office? Well, Americans are now all the "wages are too damn low" guys. America now has the best educated Hamburger flippers in the World! With good paying jobs now nonexistent, college grads are turning to Fast Food as a means to pay for that education that was supposed to help them prevent spending a lifetime at one of those jobs. America is now a service based industry with slave colonies doing our manufacturing beyond the reach of U.S. Labor Laws abroad. Fast Food Workers are on strike today. They can't make a living on a Mc Salary. Mc Donald's answer? Get another job, don't use heat and find a place to live for under $600 a month. OK. Why is there no money to pay people in America at the lower end of the scale more in wages? The answer is simple. Ask a rich CEO of a Mc Donald's. He'll tell you, "Then investors wouldn't get double digit returns on their stock." It's time for corporations to begin paying for workers. If their utility bill went up, they'd pay it. Workers are as much a cost of doing business as the hamburger that goes into a Big Mac. So stop being cheap, Mc Scrooge, and put another lump of coal on the worker's fire. Like the Grinch, you may find you found something that was missing in your chest, like your heart.
