I would personally not care one bit if a fast food worker got paid as much as me or more.... good for them, I wouldn't want to do that job so why would I complain?
The point of the thing is not your want of a particular job. If all you were able to do was flip burgers, then you'd find yourself in one of two situations to earn your living. Either flipping burgers, or demanding that those who are able to do more give what they earned to you. Essentially the philosophy here is that ability deserves punishment and not reward.
