A thousand times this guy breaking open the smug privilege of those who mock fast food (and other low wage) jobs. Well done!

Put the politicians on minimum wage. That will be a real change as we know it, but it will scare the crap out of them.. FROM THE VERY "ALMIGHTY" TOP TO THE BOTTOM.. SO THEY KNOW HOW WE FEEL...

YES! Employers don't want to pay US a living wage so they encourage immigration to those they CAN exploit! Such immigrants can still make a better life here at low wages than what they had 'back home.' Meanwhile, the majority of workers struggle on just $8.50/hour before taxes. Me? I am one of these 'working poor' US citizens, and now have 3 PT jobs and still can't save for a decent car or modest home! Live month-to-month.
