It seems it would be difficult to pay "disorderly conduct" fines when making minimum wage. Or maybe there is a government program for this?? Comparing this movement to the civil rights movement is laughable. If they want to be taken seriously they need to drop this.

Nope it was always me who posted the original message. Any person that thinks a fast food worker should make $15 per hour can not be reasoned with or partake in any kind of logical conversation. Go ahead give them $15 an hour and see what happens. I'll give you a hint, the rich franchise owners will still be rich and all of the financial genius' that fought for this big raise will be unemployed…

Exactly. I hate even suggesting that's the case when people want to rally around the "poor, helpless guy with the camera, being abused by the big, evil government flunky!", but I've seen it happen way, way to often to ignore the possibility.

Sorry for the confusion, I was typing fast. What I meant was the Cost of Living makes the $0.75 equivalent to $8.00 now (or $8.02, to be precise). What I meant about not keeping up is the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25/hour.
