Fast Food Workers Strike Today Over Low Wages [VIDEO]

We may be just fine around here when we pull up to our local fast food drive through, but in many places around the Country fast food workers and some other chain store employees plan on walking off the job today, in a one day protest over low wages.

When we talked about this today on the Sean and Richie Show it really did seem to have people split on how they feel about the minimum wage. Some people called in to support the workers and others fell more into the “If you don’t like it, get a different job” category.

Personally, I feel like people who work hard, in any field should be well compensated. I also understand how companies feel as they have found themselves competing in a world economy forcing American wages to stay competitive in general with those overseas. What I can’t understand is when a company can be so very out of touch with it’s employees and what ti takes to live in today’s economy.

This is the case with McDonald’s who according to Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, figured they could just help their worker’s with their money problems by teaching them how to mange what money they do earn, better. Really?

Even better wait until you actually see the numbers they worked up for their employees.
