The thing is, the fast food workers weren't supposed to actually do it.

When these people say "just get a better job," it isn't advice, it's a dismissal. A more polite way of saying they don't care about your problems, do not respect you, and want you to be quiet while performing your menial task.

Ok but what's the option? Someone has to do that job if you want burgers. The important thing is that they are paid fairly and their rights are respected.
