NYT had a good piece highlighting the wave of strikes taking place in fast-food restaurants across the country. One item could use some clarification.

At one point the piece notes that some labor leaders scoff at the idea that these workers could be unionized based on the fact that their turnover rate is 75 percent. If fast-food workers were paid a minimum of $15 an hour, the central demand of the strikes, then it is likely their turnover would be considerably lower.
