Fast Food Worker Strikes

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/02/bu...ties.html?_r=0

Maybe one fast food company should pull a Henry Ford. Double the workers' wages to inspire loyalty. I wonder what would happen if, for example, Wendy's hamburger joint decided to do that and say -- Ok, folks, your current wages are all doubled - all the line workers making the food and taking the orders/money.

That would, of course, piss off the managers, who would then be making about the same as a cashier, but heck, maybe double everyone's salaries except executives.

I could totally get behind that. I ran the numbers for Target once, and you could more than double the salaries of everyone and the total would just equal what the top 10 or so got paid.

Without a general, an army will starve. It is not an easy thing to run a business such that it stays in business.

True. An average sized general can feed an army for 7 days. Nice with some fava beans and any reasonable chianti.
