Leave it to the totally not racist Bill Maher to stand up for minority McDonald’s workers today as they walk off the job to rally for a $15 minimum wage. Obviously whites work at fast food restaurants too, and McDonald’s CEO Don Thompson, an African-American, made nearly $14 million last year — but what’s important here is that Maher cares.
@billmaher minorities arent the only people working at McDonald's

@billmaher Don't fuel that fire. I don't honestly believe anyone is denied a raise because of race anymore. Lazy whites don't get raises

@billmaher Are you saying McDonalds is racist for not raising wages for low skill jobs?

@billmaher Yes! Why not make the minimum wage 100k/ year and it will be fair and then everyone will have lots of money!

That conversation went nowhere; let’s try this one.
@billmaher Minority student: Can I go to the school across town with better facilities, athletics, and teaching methods? Government: No.
