If you take a job at fast food you know what your getting. I don't really think it's any employers job to take care of people, do it yourself. To say someone flipping burgers or rolling burritos should make as much as someone who does something that takes some skill is ridiculous.
When I was a teenager McDonalds and the fast food bunch, was the job to have! We learned work ethic and money management, plus had some cash left for dating! Between the age of 16 and 18, I never wanted to make fast food a career!
Now we have those folks that may or may not have a high school diploma, functionally illiterate, or not motivated to find real work, that want a "living wage" off a job designed for teens and retired people who need a little extra cash. WAKE UP PEOPLE! Whether we gave them a living wage or not, they will still receive assistance. Why? the owners will cut back on their workers as they can't sell a $6.00 burger! If I'm going to pay $9.00 for a burger I WANT TABLE SERVICE!
So, let's start over. How about utilizing the money (BILLIONS OF DOLLARS) we currently waste on the teachers unions and administrators, to actually EDUCATE CHILDREN SO THAT THEY CAN FIND MEANINGFUL WORK INSTEAD OF JUST FLIPPING BURGERS!!!
You KNOW why, Someone
The Libs have got to blame someone, ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES
Because right now, it's politically correct to slam these companies. And you know as well as I do, that being FAIR is ONE THING that ALL of these PC organizations DO NOT do well. Over they years, I've been seeing MORE AND MORE HYPOCRISY from these groups, and it's getting WORSE. They're getting more and more like the Nazi party EVERY YEAR. Not that the right wing groups are much better, but most of them don't claim to be high-minded altruists, like a LOT of PC NAZIS DO.
I started working fast food for $1.90 an hour because my mother went back to jail and I needed to eat. By 18 I was a Manager. By the age of 28 I was making $50K a year. By the age of 40 I was the owner and pulling in over 200K. You people are clueless!!! Raise the rate to $15hr and all the people that work fast food will be unemployed and not just getting a little help from Uncle Sam, they will need him for everything. How much more will that cost the tax payers. It is not how much Fast Food Cost tax payers because of low wages, but how much they save tax payers by being the largest employer in the US other than the government itself.
By the way employees working for me in 1978 for $3.35 could go the movies and take a date for an hours worth of labor. You could buy 3 gallons of gas(not one) or 5 packs of smokes. It is the high cost of labor that drives the prices. Do you think people are better off today making $7.25? It is not fast food that is driving up the cost of everything. High wages/ higher prices= higher income tax/ higher sales tax!!! Get it?? The only person who comes out ahead in this is Uncle Sam!!!
Oh more more thing KFC made more millionaires than Bill Gates!
