McDonald’s workers are striking, and some say they’ll contaminate the restaurant’s food if they are not given higher wages.
TV host Adam Sharp went to one of the protests — many of those speaking out were members of the Service Employees International Union.
Breitbart News recorded the exchange between sharp and the strikers:
Sharp: How’s it going everybody’? Why are we here today? Why are you here today?
SEIU Employee: Why am I here today? I support working people.
Sharp: Do you support the wage increase to $15 an hour?
SEIU Employee: I’m not sure.
Sharp: Cause I was thinking that I might have a hard time getting my $1 McDouble if the guy making it’s making fifteen an hour. Am I wrong? I’m wrong?
SEIU Employee: He seems to think . . . my point is, my point is the people who are responsible for making that $1 McDouble, I want them to know that I’m on their side, rather than on the company’s side. I want, like, food purity.
SEIU Employee: If they’re pissed off at their employer they could be doing something to that food that’s not good for you.
Sharp: So that’s your main concern, is that if they don’t get what they want, they might contaminate the food?
SEIU Employee: I don’t know.
Sharp: I guess that’s a legitimate concern.
SEIU Employee: Pissed off employees do pissed off things.
True enough. But do you think the threat is real? Will it impact whether or not you go to McD’s? Let us know.
