Communists and assorted left-wingers who attacked McDonald’s yesterday are the same people we saw in the occupy movement. They are the income inequality people Obama likes to see unleashed around election time.
Police arrested 101 of these communist protesters as they stormed McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook Illinois demanding $15 an hour for their unskilled labor.
According to Bloomberg News, about 1,000 to 1,500 protesters, including only about 325 McDonald’s workers in restaurant uniforms, stormed though the company’s campus entrance, according to the organizers, holding signs that said, “We Are Worth More” and “My Union My Voice.”
They chanted “Hey McDonald’s You Can’t Hide, We Can See Your Greedy Side” and “No Big Macs, No Fries, Make our Wage Supersize.”
Police in riot gear began arresting them for criminal trespass when they refused to disperse and blocked the entrance to the HQ instead.
They said another 1,000 protesters would return demanding $15/hr wage and the right to a union in support of fastfoodglobal.org.
Fast Food Global has a web page that claims their organization is in 33 countries and on 6 continents. Their website is an unimpressive compilation of photos, videos, tweets, and links demanding $15/hr wages.
Their goal is to make sure that even entry level jobs are paid well. They want a living wage for their unskilled labor instead of bettering themselves.
An influx of uneducated illegals combined with the loss of more-and-more jobs overseas is adding to the problem.
The protesters being arrested claimed they were brave. “This is what courage looks like”, they boasted, like fools.
They are communists plain and simple who think they are entitled to other peoples’ money. They do not believe in capitalism or allowing anyone to become rich.
They are pretending a job making hamburgers in McDonald’s is a career path.

In Switzerland, the voters rejected a $25/hr minimum wage by 76%. In that case, the unskilled workers demanded the salary so they could live a decent life performing entry level jobs. Critics argued that it would raise production costs and increase unemployment.
