Thousands of people have recently taken to the streets of Chicago to protest the current minimum wage and demand an increase to $15/hr. One of the initial problems with this wage increase is that a cashier at McDonald’s should not be a job one aspires to retain for the rest of their lives; fast food jobs have classically been reserved as a first job for teenagers, and some college students, who are trying to make a buck between classes.
Increasingly, however, due to poor government intervention in business and expansions in welfare, these jobs have been increasingly filled by middle-aged people who have become victims of the left’s system of governance. So what is the solution? Well, apparently it is to increase McDonald’s service people’s jobs to that of entry-level accountants, which then prompts major fast food chains like McDonalds to do away with those jobs altogether and replace them with self-serving kiosks and machines. So why would this fight continue if it is not only both bad for the company but also bad for the actual future of those fast food jobs? Well, because it is being *highly* funded by far-left organizations.

You can always tell when the summer protest season is about to start … because here in Chicago the month before is when and where all of the Soros Paid AstroTurf “Protesters” practice their marching, chanting, and occupying … and within a week or two they will also practice some light rioting.
Every year it’s the same routine rehearsal, every year the media act like it’s a “surprising uprising” of some sort.
The nice thing about this is, because these “Community Organizers” call Chicago “Home”, they don’t get too violent (Unless there is a Trump rally that is) and in about three weeks they will spread out to all the other cities where the real action will be.
And lest we forget: The true minimum wage is now, and always has been … zero.
