NEW YORK – Would you like fries with that shake? Fast food employees have put down their burger flipping spatulas and are demanding respect! Well not just respect, but a decent “living wage.” 200 fast-food workers in New York City left their jobs and took to protest to negotiate pay and benefits. Some of the chains affected include Burger King, Wendy’s and Mc Donald’s (No! Not the Donalds!). Let’s hope they come to an agreement fast (no pun intended), I’m suddenly craving a cheeseburger.
