Don’t order, urge fairness

Regarding the excellent editorial on the failure of fast-food-restaurants to adequately pay their employees (“Fast food workers deserve a livable wage,” Feb. 18) I suggest the following. Everyone in the country go to a fast-food restaurant today, not to order a meal but instead tell the management we support an increase in the minimum wage to $10.00. It’s now $8.00 in Massachusetts.

If we all made visible our support for the workers, it might cause management to rethink its position.
