Are fast food workers underpaid?

Keeping in mind that the average hourly salary for all jobs in America is $22.33 (that includes executives, teachers, nurses, engineers, laborers, many jobs requiring college degrees, everyone), Source Bureau of Labor Statistics

In NYC workers are protesting for $15.00. One demonstrator said owners are greedy and workers should be paid $20-$25 per hour. The Administration wants to raise the minimum wage to $10.10. Some states and cities have already raised the minimum.

  1. If you want to earn more, work harder and get a better job. If you really shine at your low wage fast food job you will be noticed and doors will likely open. But if the job is pure drudgery and you go about it unenthusiastically you’ll go nowhere. Nor will you deserve anything better!
