Let Them Eat Cake.


Well isn’t that a slap in the face. When Fast-food workers took to the street in protest over low wages being insufficient for them to live on, public opinion is that minimum wage workers asking for an increase to $15.00 an hour is not a realistic request. Yet, according to Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a Democrat representing upper Manhattan, he cited, the motive for the council members request for a 32% or higher pay increase is “the right to make a living.” In other words, the people sitting on the council are crying foul over what they perceive as a right to a higher paycheck in order to support their family. So, in the word of Maria Antoinette, what the council members are saying to the minimum wage workers is “let them eat cake,” while they indulge in caviar.
