The nation’s fry cooks will presumably head back to work Friday without that raise they demanded in a series of rallies and walkouts across the nation Thursday. President Obama certainly doesn’t care about the working poor: if he had his way, he’d force them to work for only $9 an hour rather than the $15 they need to survive.
If fast food workers do end up securing that $15 an hour wage, a lot of people might want to trade in their degrees for spatulas.
@ktdare seriously. I'd leave the financial world and be a fry cook. I have a college degree and don't make $15 an hour…
