I live close to McDonald's headquarters. I went by the protest today. I saw a lot of people begging to be replaced by machines. Seriously, the message is incoherent and incomplete. I firmly believe that many are underpaid in this country.

But the solution is way more complex than expecting workers that do so little to be suddenly paid as much or more than workers that do so much more.
