A reporter with Fox 2 WJBK in Detroit asked a fast food worker on Tuesday why she deserved to make $15 when paramedics were paid under that amount.
Timed to correspond with the Republican Presidential Debate in Milwaukee, fast food workers took to the streets on Tuesday morning to call attention to the need for a living wage.
One worker told WJBK’s Roop Raj that workers needed a union and a minimum wage of at least $15/hour because it was impossible to live on current wages.
“It’s just not possible,” she said.
“Some people say that paramedics don’t even make $15 an hour and they save lives,” Raj told fast food worker Lakecha Jackson. “So, why should fast food workers get that?”
“Because we do too much,” Jackson replied. “We do more than we get paid.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for paramedics was $30,710, or $14.77 per hour as of May 2011.

Morning show gives airtime to panel of white ‘Karens’ who blame Black Lives Matter for making name a slur
A British TV news program gave airtime to a panel of white women named Karen who say they have been unfairly maligned.
In a segment on Monday, ITV's Morning Show talked to three women about "memes" that use their name as a slur.
"I just noticed a few memes and TikToks going on and it started of being quite funny," Karen Masters told the program. "And when the Black Lives Matter protests started, there was a lot of media putting Karen as racist. It sort of took on a life of its own."
"And I feel that we can't, as Karens, now talk about how it's affecting us because we are told that we're entitled if we do this," she continued. "So I set up a Change.org [petition] to show that this is not fair for us to have to put up with this."

‘You should have reported it’: James Clyburn scolds Fox News host over white supremacists inciting violence
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) on Sunday accused Fox News host Pete Hegseth of failing to report that white supremacists had attempted to incite violence during Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon and other places.
"As you know, over the last couple of months, we've seen riots in Portland," Hegseth told Clyburn during an interview on Fox & Friends. "President Trump made it clear, we're going to send federal agents, law enforcement officers there to protect federal property as necessary."
