Do U.S. Soldiers Deserve to Make 100 Times What Fast-Food Workers Are Paid?

"Why don't we figure out a minimum wage for fast-food workers and then multiply it..."

Never one to mince words, Fox News' "Cashin' In" host Eric Bolling laid into fast-food workers, praised the military and slapped a humorous label on a trio of liberal comedians — not bad for two minutes on a Saturday morning.

After calculating that the lowest-ranking U.S. soldiers earn a mere $8.86 per hour — while fast-food workers have been striking to get a $15 hourly wage — Bolling came up with his own formula for setting pay scales.

"Why don't we figure out a minimum wage for fast-food workers and then multiply it by a hundred [for military pay] because that's what the military actually earns," Bolling said, lauding the tough work soldiers perform and slamming the folks who want $15 per hour "to screw up my order at the drive thru."

Also notable: Bolling called John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher “the Mo, Larry, and Curly of the Left.”
