Our post about a protest by fast-food workers that led to three arrests sparked debate among readers about marchers call for a $15 per hour wage. Some found the demand reasonable, while others didn't -- including this commenter.

No. $15/hr is insane to pay someone who takes orders at McDonalds, Wendy's, etc. I think $9/hr, or maybe $10/hr is reasonable. I work harder than these people, I don't make $15/hr.
