This is why, I can't in any way shape or form support an American walkout of fast food workers. I know you're not all teenagers working after school, but $15 an hour? Really? For crappy food and crappy service? WTF guys...Maybe's its completely different on the East Coast, but in 2012 in the Midwest and the south, it hadn't changed one bit. The cashier mumbles, the drive thru girls is high as a kite, the order is always wrong, the "manager" is sleeping off a hangover, and two of your shift workers didn't show up due to their incarceration last night. Therefore, the floors are dirty, everything rushed, and the situation is generally just crap. Long before I realized I was getting older and ought to start watching what I put into my body, I stopped eating fast food. I did this because going to the place was disgusting, and everybody working had either taken a ride on my ambulance or was a probation client of my wife's.
So instead of walking out and throwing a tantrum try this, take a little pride in what you do, whatever it may be. Take a little pride in yourself. Work hard and thank your lucky stars, God, The Aliens or the Great Spaghetti Monster that you were born in the USA. That your version of "starvation" comes with an iPhone and cigarettes.
