: I think all of the Mc Donald employees should form a union, demand better wages less hours and better trained managers. If they trained thier managers, they would be so dependent on the suboardent staff to run the place effienently.

Well, my union, the IWW, is non-profit. We are not interested in money, we are interested in organizing members of the working class into the One Big Union. I don't see how training managers better will make the workers feel better. It has to come from the workers, organizing and seizing control of the conditions of their work. Workplace democracy, not not burocracy(?)
