It’s unclear whether this sign was posted in response to a rising tide of anti-fast-food-chain sentiment in the Bay Area or just old-fashioned hooliganism, but the owner of a Burger King franchise in Oakland has allegedly been dealing with repeat instances of broken windows. No one deserves that, really, so the store’s owner went ahead and posted a message of bold solidarity: “This Burger King Supports the Occupy Movement.” It’s unclear how it does that, especially if workers get low wages and the restaurant is affiliated with a huge, multinational fast-food corporation that is also called Burger King, but at least it banks locally.
