"My name is David, and I'm here to save your beer."
Dude, why are you always being so harsh on the Koch brothers? You act like they are selfish thugs trying to single-handedly swing an election with their enormous wallets when all they really want to do is help save your favorite craft brew.
I really have to admire these workers who keep pushing for a living wage. Too many people are afraid to risk losing what crappy jobs they can get, but we all benefit from these actions:
The next round of strikes by fast-food workers demanding higher wages is scheduled for Thursday, and this time labor organizers plan to increase the pressure by staging widespread civil disobedience and having thousands of home-care workers join the protests.
The organizers say fast-food workers — who are seeking a $15 hourly wage — will go on strike at restaurants in more than 100 cities and engage in sit-ins in more than a dozen cities.
But by having home-care workers join, workers and union leaders hope to expand their campaign into a broader movement.
“On Thursday, we are prepared to take arrests to show our commitment to the growing fight for $15,” said Terrence Wise, a Burger King employee in Kansas City, Mo., and a member of the fast-food workers’ national organizing committee.

It’s always good to see folks in responsible positions refuse to play games with far-right fanatics who substitute ignorant, facts-free ideology for honest research and expertise.
