the only one who can put you on the bottom is yourself.

I am not sure where you are writing from. In Canada and the USA the only one who can put you on the bottom is yourself. And you are the only one obligated to get yourself out of it. I don't deny a person's right to organise. Just be prepared for the consequences. In the private sector when unskilled people go union nobody wins. Look forward to store closings. The stores that don't close will have to increase prices, this will lead to lost customers which in a highly competitive business like fast food will surely happen. Which in turn will lead to more closings and more layoffs. Do you see the cycle yet? In private enterprise the only thing that can dictate unskilled wages is supply and demand. If you upset that balance, it will only lead to unemployment. But hey, it's your neck, Mcunions won't affect me a bit. You couldn't pay me to eat that swill.
