First was this morning–hearing about a contact being burned onto the eyeball & causing blindness. However, there was quickly two websites snopes.com & wafflesatnoon.com to disprove what they were claiming. Although, snopes.com–while reading the other featured claims almost made me sick. Also, the pictures feature look horrific & like it could be true but, as you read or if you have worn contacts yourself–we know it’s not true. Although, I almost believe this one at first.
The other things I saw was about fast food employees going on strike, I thought it was a joke when I saw my friend post…
Just read that fast food workers are striking, asking for $15 per hour….. WOW…. When will these people get it through their heads…. Minimum Wage was NEVER designed to be a living wage, it is an ENTRY wage, raising min wage will just make your “value meal” jump from $5 to $10, and this will hurt EVERYONE!!!! LOOK HOW WELL THE LAST 10 WAGE HIKES WORKED. Look where Italy was at…. Everyone was a millionaire, and a loaf of bread cost $25,000
But, after carefully looking it up, it’s true, as mentioned in the Fox News–McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, & Wendy’s employees are going on strike–
The Washington Post reports that the protests will take place in New York City, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Flint, Mich., involving workers at McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC. Some employees at stores including Dollar Tree, Macy’s and Victoria’s Secret are also expected to join the protesters in several cities.
And believe it our not–it’s because they want higher wages… Twice as much…
The workers are calling for wages of $15 per hour, more than double New York’s current minimum wage of $7.25.
Unbelievable! It’s amazing what our worlds has come to.
