    Burger King Workers Need to Get a Real Job



    Brad Schimel, the Republican candidate for Attorney General, told supporters at a Milwaukee County Republicans party that he’s tired of the contentious statewide debate over the minimum wage.
    “I want every one of our neighbors to have a job again, a well-paid job, so we don’t have to argue about minimum wage for someone working at Burger King,” he said. “Let’s get them a real job.”

    I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.

    The power of the white world is threatened whenever a black man refuses to accept the white world's definitions.

    I thought McDonalds was the fast food demon of the world. So now they're picking on Burger King?

    Please don't tell me they're going to go after someone other than Walmart!

    The enemy of people of the right and the left is the corporate system.

    It is destroying the planet and keeping the pay of workers as low as possible.

    But it is the corporate system not a demon. It does these things with a smiling face.

    They aren't going after Burger King, only those peons that do 99% of the work who aren't a real part of the company. Being a Burger King owner is a "real job", because it means your keeping most of the wealth created by all those peons' labor for yourself.

    And yes, I too saw the pic and thought, that looks better then Burger King food. I worked there for 6 months at age 17 after being fired from McDonalds for eating some of the 20 lbs of food that they throw out every hour. "Fast" food requires low quality, because it requires that it be already be made, which requires throwing much of it out before its sold, which requires using the lowest quality ingredients in order to reduce the cost of such massive waste.
