This is a different kind of article. This is not my opinion, but I thought it was different and should be read!
A series of rolling fast food “walkout” strikes makes it way to the South this Thursday, August 29th. Thousands of workers from Dallas, Houston, Austin, Memphis, Tampa and over a dozen other cities are planning to walk off their jobs to protest the fact that they aren’t being paid $15 / hour to serve GMOs, high-fructose corn syrup, soybean-assisted “meat” burgers and aspartame to their customers.
Yet I say it’s a call for a nationwide celebration! And the only thing better than fast food workers walking off their jobs for a day would be fast food workers walking off their jobs forever.
Consider the irony of all this for just a moment: Fast food workers demand to be paid a “living wage” to serve food that’s killing everybody. It’s not even debated anymore that the very foods served at fast food restaurants — high in processed salt, chemical additives, fried fats, refined sugars, MSG, acrylamides, aspartame and GMOs — are the primary culprits behind our nation’s growing epidemic of chronic disease: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and more. The average fast food meal contains over 100 chemicals, many of which are known to cause cancer and other diseases. Almost nothing served by fast food establishments is considered “nutritious.”
So any day that the fast food industry is shut down is a good day for the health of all Americans. In fact, I’m calling this Thursday a national holiday: The “National Health Food Day” where everybody gets a mandatory break from all the toxins they’d normally shove down their throats while expecting Obamacare to pay all the costs of the diseases they acquire as a result.
Have you seen what the Natural News Forensic Food Lab found in Chicken McNuggets? Strange fibers, weird hair-like structures, bizarre colorants and more. This is fast food, folks. And the word “food” almost doesn’t belong in the phrase.
Fast food workers need more money to pay all their sick-care costs
Only in America do people demand university graduate-level wages to serve up chemically-altered fake food that causes the very diseases which raise the costs of health insurance that force fast food companies to slash hours and cut jobs in the first place.
Talk about an insane spiral of self-destruction…
Remarkably, the point of view of the low-income class of workers who are behind all this is merely that they are not being paid enough to poison the population with foods that cause disease. Apparently if they were all paid $15 / hour, then everything would be okay. Heck, at that rate they all might even be able to afford the chemotherapy treatments and diabetes drugs they’ll all eventually need to treat all the disease symptoms caused by eating their own product.
And as long as fast food workers are being paid $15 / hour, I think cancer center chemotherapy poison technicians should be paid $50 / hour. Hospital workers should get $75 / hour and funeral home workers should bring home $100 / hour. It’s America’s new sick-care economy! And it’s all been captured right here in my CounterThink cartoon called Business is Booming!
