Why is it that liberals never think of the consequences of their actions?
In yet another sign of the chaos being sown by liberals in Obama era, a spreading strike of workers at fast food restaurants where the workers demand a doubling in pay to $15 an hour. Not only would that increase the cost of a hamburger, impacting especially lower income diners, but it would also negatively impact the hiring of younger workers, many from minorities and poor families, for whom such jobs are the first step out of poverty.
Considering that unemployment for black teens is above 40%, if this strike were successful that number would rise even higher. Would businesses really hire an unskilled teen and pay them $15 an hour to start?
But not to worry. Should the strike succeed and black teen unemployment worsen we can always count on the race profiteers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to blame it on white racism not liberal labor activism!
