As Twitchy reported, left-wing union organizers once again Thursday put together strikes at fast food restaurants, with protesters demanding a $15 an hour minimum wage. Hearing news of Nelson Mandela’s death, many saw a parallel between their “struggle” and Mandela’s. Mandela might never have worked the drive-thru at McDonald’s, but he was imprisoned for 27 years, so he knows the struggle of the American fast food worker.

There’s no denying that Mandela’s death quickly pushed aside any news coverage of the fast food strikes.
