Good for Bill Maher, who during his "New Rules" segment this Friday, took the likes of Walmart and McDonalds to task for being too cheap to pay their workers a living wage, and dumping the cost of them doing business onto the taxpayers.
If anyone was not already acquainted with the standard fare offered up on Fox every Saturday during their so-called "business block" where they spend week after week trashing unions, the poor and the working class in general, they got a pretty good dose of what watching those shows on a regular basis is like if they caught John Oliver's opening segment on The Daily Show this Thursday.
As fast food workers in seven different cities continue to hold rallies and protests demanding a living wage, to no one's surprise, the pundits over at Fox used it as an excuse to participate on a couple of their favorite pastimes, bashing unions and the working poor.
As we already discussed here, with fast food workers across the country organizing strikes to demand a living wage, fighting against the likes of the Koch brothers and their ilk, who don't think we need any minimum wage at all, Stephen Colbert took McDonald's to task for their financial advice website for employees.
The hosts of Fox & Friends on Friday suggested that fast food workers should stop striking for higher pay and get a second job because the minimum wage "was never meant to be a career wage."
