The CEO of the super market Market Basket was fired by the board. In spite of making his company higher profits, paying his employees higher than the minimum wage and beating sales prices of even Wal-Mart.
After being fired the non-unionized work force walked out. After a six week stand still the board gave the CEO his job back. Talk about David vs. Goliath! There is still hope for the American worker, but it will take employees and bosses like the CEO and the work force to make change happen.

I am all for more monetary compensation for service workers.

The backside of that position is that my quarter pounder with cheese will resultantly cost me $29.95.

Your thoughts, Tot?

ha not really even if mcdonalds paid out 15 dollars an hour the cost of a big mac would only go up by about 68 cents. However the culture has to change.
The CEO of Toyota only made 1.9 million dollars in 2012. The Ford CEO made 21 million in the same year.
The culture has to change from wal street to main street.

Yep. Good point. Glad to see you can spot a joke when one is made. Some (Tot) cannot do that.

September 11, 2014
Ok, does anyone else have a problem with the president of the United States now? I can't believe he used Somalia as an example for eradicating terrorists. First of all, terrorists are thriving and growing in Somalia. Second Somalia as a nation is a mess. I am kind of ashamed ...
