    What they do isn't worth 15 an hour. Hate to break their hearts. You want money like that then get out of fast food and get a real,job

    Yikes. I think the editor deserves less than $15 after that grammar mistake.

    Good for them. Because while you all are fighting over the bigger pile of crumbs the .01% are walking away with the whole cake. Maybe you could consider asking for the same as well.

    $15 is just too much! I agree with a bit more for most states, but not that much. $9.50 is what those around me make to start and that's reasonable. Ive lived on that before.

    Don't ppl realize they aren't supposed to live off minimum wage? And if they get a pay increase does that mean everyone else Will?

    I dont think the answer should be increasing wages. There needs to be a cap on cost of living. Its ridiculous. We were able to barely scrape by making 1200 a month but barely. Now we make close to double that and still cant afford an apartments plus all the other bills. We no longer qualify to receive welfare but this is some bs. Im not even upset about that. Why has the price for things like milk increased? How is it ok for landlords to implement an annual 3% increase on rent? Doesnt sound like much but shit adds up quick when your barely making it. Emt's should be paid way more than they get. Cops get salary why not the first responders? Armed security guards should be getting more than $14 an hour living in a coastal city.

    McDonalds is meant as a starter job. Unless you plan on moving up the chain minimum wage, 9 to 9.75 is very reasonable.

    People don't realize that once you raise the minimum wage, the price of everything else will go up so you'll be in the same boat you were previously in. Morons.

    Um no. In NYC guess what they have replaced people with machines. So guess what most McDonald's will start looking like?? McDonald's is a starter job not a career. You can be manager in a year just for working there. But that don't mean you need to stay there.
