Low Fast Food Wages

Researcher at U.C. Berkeley sought that in Texas they have the highest public assistance funding which led to last summer fast-food workers staging protests to raise minimum wage. Instead of $8 an hour, workers are asking for up to $15 an hour. Why are workers asking for a raise? Because those who are working at fast food restaurants are mostly single or married adults who aren't in school. Along with those who are single parents who can't seem to be making enough to pay for the electric bill.

Not only that, low wage fast food also affects hard working teenagers. Teenagers who is risking their free time from school to work for a good pay and get ready for college.
