With a $15 an hour minimum wage being a key rallying factor for the Democratic Party in 2016, hordes of activists marched on McDonald’s locations yesterday. The uprising by an unskilled, unmotivated tatterdemalion segment of the underclass is just another turn of the screw in Obamastan, a sad and wasted land where both rhyme and reason checked out long ago as a once great country careens towards the abyss. The Democrats are casting their lot with the griddle monkeys, fryer jockeys, drive through window customer relations reps and attention challenged order takers as a key component of their army of politically aggrieved identity groups in the hope of keeping the White House in the party’s clutches. Never mind the members of the disenfranchised white working class who have suffered from a diminished standard of living and dwindling future prospects as high paying jobs were shipped overseas because a hell of a lot of them are capable of critical thinking and that is the last thing that the Dems want. It’s always easier to harvest the low hanging fruit and the siren song of 15 bucks an hour is hoped to generate provide a bountiful harvest.

Reuters reports that “Thousands march for $15 hourly wages across United States”:

Thousands of low-wage workers marched in New York, Los Angeles and other U.S. cities on Thursday calling for minimum pay of $15 an hour in a cause that has scored major legislative victories in California and New York state in recent weeks.

The union-backed “Fight for $15” campaign has expanded since its inception in 2012 from a movement mostly centered on the fast-food industry to encompass other low-wage sectors, such as home health care, retail outlets and hospitals.

Much of the attention in Thursday’s rallies, in what some organizers called a national day of action, was on McDonald’s Corp (MCD.N) fast-food eateries, the world’s biggest restaurant chain by revenue.

Demonstrators said they want to get to a $15 minimum in any they can, whether that happens at the state or city level or even via individual companies.

In New York City, demonstrators rallied in Times Square and later protested outside a Republican gala featuring the party’s three candidates for the 2016 presidential race, while in Los Angeles protesters held aloft large balloons and marched behind a banner that read, “McJobs hurt us all.”

Governor Andrew Cuomo spoke at the rally in Times Square, on a day that also saw Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders express support for the marchers.

The marches on Mickey D’s coincided with more George Soros-Clinton crime family backed SJW’s taking to the streets in the Big Apple to protest the national devil Donald Trump. It’s only mid-April now and there will be additional protests coming as the Dem sanctioned agitators continue to in the words of Saul Alinsky: rub raw the sores of discontent.
