today! right now! fast-food workers on strike throughout the united states

Today, fast-food workers all over the United States are standing up for their rights, demanding a living wage, demanding to be free from harassment and intimidation.

From New York to Seattle, from Maine to Texas, from Los Angeles to Chicago to Raleigh, low-wage workers are on strike. Please show your support by signing their open letter to McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Domino’s and Papa John’s. These corporate giants netted $7.35 billions in profit last year alone, yet they pay their workers poverty wages. Help them demand more!

I just deleted some troll's comment expressing outrage over the idea of fast-food workers earning $15/hour - AND over his tax dollars supporting people on welfare.

Hmmm... maybe if incredibly wealthy corporations paid a living wage, then...

Disconnect much??
