“"Emmanuel Gonzalez, who has been working at McDonald's for seven months, said he showed up to the protest Wednesday prepared to be arrested (he hasn't been). Arrest is "the price we have to pay to fight for $15 and hour," said the 18-year-old, who is just weeks away from his high school graduation."
I laughed hilariously when I read this part. Been there for BARELY over half a year, and thinks he deserves 15 bucks an hour!!!??? 18 year old to boot! Do you think you're saving lives? Or building buildings? Because they get paid sometimes LESS than that!!! But you deserve that for doing what...putting ketchup on a burger? Dropping and lifting a basket into oil? Saying "May I take your order please?"
What sacrifices does he make for his employer? Doing his job? Something EVERYONE knows what is expected and for what pay they get when they start?
I've worked at McDonalds. It's easy work! This KID thinks he deserves a better wage than people in careers that they have been in for 1, 2, 3-PLUS years committed and respected and this ....KID thinks he deserves more than them....I find that hilarious!!!
(plus, is he even a good worker? 18 year olds these days, rarely even know what WORK-ETHIC is. Sure some do, but I doubt one who's demanding almost double salary after less than even a year of employment, has any.)”
“I think it's just people wishing their country would pay attention to domestic problems for a change. not that attention shouldn't be given to outside issues, but....will domestic issues be handled sometime soon?”
“*rolls eyes*, yeah reasonable if you sweep your mistakes under the carpet! Take responsibility for your inabilities! Just cause the monks don't have a problem with it, and YES it was ultimately going to be destroyed, what happens when it's something that's priceless? Or perhaps a fresh poured concrete sidewalk? Stop being so ignorant!! Allowing such a mistake without discipline, and 'excusing it' to boot, is only going to encourage the child to make more lame brained choices!”
“A lame way to rationalize a destruction of art. Sure, THIS time isn't a big deal. Meanwhile the kid just learned 'Hey destroying this was fun! I wanta do it again'. SO you know what, IT IS a big deal because what happens next time they want to play in fresh poured concrete?
And would you people stop excusing yourself by giving the kid super human powers. Open your eyes and stop excusing yourself from mistakes in not being able to watch a 2 year old who moves about as fast as a half battery dead RC car with bad direction! Give me a break. It's called CONSCIOUS-ABLE responsibility!
Stop rationalizing silly reasons for being a failed parent and observing person!”

“The kid is also saying to himself "I can act any way I want too in public,". I thought parents were supposed to parent.”
“Sorry but it's 100% the parents fault, PERIOD. Stop trying to rationalize peoples inadequacies to maintain a child, especially by giving said child super powers. The ONLY reason why a kid gets away with anything, is cause the parent is spacing off and not paying attention!”
“oh give me a break! I, would not want food served by someone who has hair pertruding from every orifice. Now from a business standpoint, hundreds feel the same way. Do the math.......I'm done debating with you”

“He didn't have long hair "protruding out of every orifice". That's kind of a kinky interpretation on your part. Whats' sauce for the gander is sauce for the goose. If women can have long hair in the food industry, not allowing men the same is discrimination.”
“meanwhile, if someone can't keep the food out of the food they are serving, or it getting in the way, then yes, they should have to have a haircut. Otherwise honestly, why the heck are you getting into the food industry, when you have a hair going everywhere? PLENTY of jobs where, that makes NO difference!”

“Who says this guy couldn't keep the "food out of the food"? Long hair is not prohibitted in the food industry.”
“It's also called putting your hair up respectably. AND while I don't expect a woman to chop her hair off just to work in a food service place, I DO expect them to have it maintained and in order and restrained from going into peoples FOOD!”

“Then the same should be applied to men. That's all.”
