Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

The days are getting shorter and school started this week so I am lining up my recipes for the Fall.  Chicken is a staple in our house and this was an easy breezy “4 ingredient-less than 40 minute” recipe.

Have it your way..NOT today…at least not at Burger King on Concord Pike in Wilmington.  Fast Food employees at this location joined in with dozens of other workers in U.S. cities to protest their low pay and benefits.

Most workers agreed that the profits these corporations earn should be used to pay higher salaries and benefits which would be better for the economy.  The minimum wage of $7.25 an hour or $15,000 a year for full time employees is not enough to support a family.  Jobs which were once held by High School students are now being filled by men and women with families who are living paycheck to paycheck.

Burger King Worldwide stated that they do not make pay decisions for their independent franchises, but feels as though an increase in salaries would mean higher priced menu items.

Federal Labor Law gives all workers the right to engage in “protected concerted activities” to complain about wages, working conditions or other terms of employment.  Therefore, those involved in today’s protests are protected and can return to work without repercussions.  The local Police was also on hand to ensure walk-in and drive-thru customers were not affected.

What is your opinion on today’s Fast Food Protest.  Should the minimum wage be raised to $9.00 an hour as proposed by The President or higher as requested by the workers?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear.  I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.

Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE.  Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.

Are you ready for the cooler weather of Autumn or are you like me and love the heat of the Summer?

Today I am linking up with Katherines Corner, come on over and congratulate her on reaching 10,000 followers – woohoo!
