fast food workers rally for 15$ an hour

Fast food workers are trying to fight to get $15 an hour. This started in New york two years ago but fought for $10 an hour now it spread to other states like Chicago and rally and people getting brought to jail. This relates to profit, or how much people should be making an hour. which could raise even more problems because if fast food is making $15 an hour. then it raises other questions like why cant other people get a raise and if workers are getting paid more than the business owners would lose profit that they are getting from there business. Then it is going to cause them to lose more money that they should be getting from there business but instead is losing money. which at the end could cause the business to shut down. the reason for that is because they cant afford to keep paying that amount to there workers and have enough money to keep the business going.then at the end of all of that most of them will be getting laid off.
