In case you didn’t hear about it, fast food workers across the country walked off their really tough jobs of deep frying french fries, flipping burgers and assembling $1 sandwiches to demand that their minimum wage increase from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour.
Wait.. WHAT? A 107% pay increase?? That’s pretty bold!
That’s pretty damn ridiculous too!
A lot of people nowadays are such pussies; they just want everything handed to them.
If you work at McDonald’s and make $7.25 an hour, but don’t want to continue to make $7.25 an hour you have two options:
- Bust your ass and work your way up the company ladder like normal people do.
- Go work somewhere that pays more.
“Oh, but poor Johnny is 23 and has 5 kids from 4 different women. He can’t provide for his family while only making $7.25 an hour to put together sausage, egg & cheese biscuits.”
Damn… writing that just made me hungry!
Anyway, Johnny is a DUMBASS to be in his familial situation. If he’s that dumb, and his skill set only allows him to create those glorious, delicious breakfast sandwiches, how did he come up with the idea to walk off the job and demand that Obama hands him a huge raise?
The Service Employees International Union, which represents more than 2 million workers in health care, janitorial and other industries, has been providing financial support and training for local organizers in the fast-food strikes around the country.
Well there ya go… fucking unions AGAIN screwing everything up!
Some people here may feel bad for the lazy, promiscuous, Johnny. I do not! Do y’all think employers will merely absorb their higher payrolls if the Feds were to actually raise the minimum wage to $15? They absolutely won’t.
Consumers (that’s US ya stupid libs) will pay for it as menu pricing will increase dramatically! Your “$5 Foot Loooong” will become $13!
Look, If ya don’t wanna make minimum wage, don’t work at the minimum! Bust your ass, you’ll get noticed and promoted. If you’re working for a company that doesn’t push their people to be the best, and reward them for doing so, then move on!
There is no future in flipping burgers, however… That should just be a jumping off point…
