Fashion and Fun after Fifty

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?

On the first Saturday of each month you can set up tables to sell new and used items for a fee of $15.00, at The Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown. In June I made over $150.00, but last month it was too darn hot, so today the boys and I went and got a great spot in the shade – thanks Sister Jeanette!!!

I try not to spend my profits but today was not a good selling day so I walked around to check out the other vendors and came across this Raggedy Anne Doll for $1.00 to add to my collection.

We got up early so Tayair decided to nap and Malik stayed in the air conditioned car for most of the morning.

If you are a collector of old newspapers and magazines, these were being sold for $5.00 a piece.

Of course I purchased more jewelry from my favorite $1.00 vendor, and a tripod for my camera. All in all it was a good day and I am looking forward to next month.
