Wendy's employee makes compelling contribution to minimum wage debate

First there was this Wendy's worker who accidentally served up a piping hot serving of weed.

Now there's this:

Reporter Jeff Valin interviews Alesha Fuller. Fuller is among the fast food workers striking to get their pay raised to $15 per hour. Why $15? Why not $20? Or $30? The level they’re demanding is arbitrary.

Valin asks the single mom, “How much of a difference would it be to make $15 an hour for you?”

Fuller replies, “That would be a major difference. I will get a lot, a lot of things done that I really need done right now. And that $15 an hour, that would mean I would have to work a little less days instead of every day, all day.”

Increase my wages so I have do less work! -- that's clearly a winning incentive for any employer.

Bonus quote from another worker progressive protestor:  "I mean, it's not going to be something that happens overnight, but eventually they are going to get tired of us doing strikes and doing other movements, and they're going to get tired and give us what we really want."
