Fast-food workers across the country are on strike today because they want their wages doubled. Do you agree with their demands for this pay increase?

We see McDonalds, Hardees, Chick fila, Shane's and think "big corporations" instead of remembering these are franchise businesses. These local businesses provide experience for future entrance level employment for many high school and college kids as well as for senior citizens, retirees and those who need the 'extra income'. There goes the jobs and the value menu items some families depend on to 'take their kids out.' Sad day.

They certainly have the right to strike. however, I disagree with asking for their wages to double. If you don't agree with the pay, then you should look elsewhere. I don't think these jobs were meant to be a career and raise a family on.
