I'll allow $15 an hour...if I get to personally drag the stupid mother *expletive deleted*er who can't manage to put the meat on the burger (much less get the rest of the order right) out back and shoot him on the spot to be replaced by someone who can do the job right.

For $15 an hour the goddamn burger better look like it does on the commercial or the spatula jockey gets it!

I'm polite to waitstaff, just as I am polite (not to mention downright friendly) with anybody who asks me what I would like to eat and drink, and then brings me that exact thing. Those people are some of my favorite people in the world.

The main consequence of raising fast food wages will be mechanization.

Some fast food places already are replacing order takers with iPads. There is absolutely no reason to not have a fully automated McDonalds with maybe one staffer to clear jams.
Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
