While I understand your point, there are LOTS of jobs that require the same level of skill as a burger flipper. Fast food employees just get knocked around in analogies a lot more than your typical retail clerk, shelf stocker, dry cleaner, barber, security guard, forklift operator... etc. Hopefully, you don't fall prey to that American axiom that college is a minimum requirement for employment and if you don't have a double master's degree, you're worthless.
Hell, how many stories to we read on Slashdot about thousands of IT people being laid off? Being a geek is apparently in the same supply-demand ball park as fast food. Almost jobs will be, eventually, if the robot/AI overlords become competent enough. Will anyone deserve a wage at that point?
