Why are Walmart and McDonalds employees even protesting unfair wages anyways? There’s a fucking reason you’re working there. You’re the bottom of the working class. Either get off your ass and work towards something better or…
"Anyone who thinks that McDonalds or any other fast food restaurant should raise their wages listen up….
These fine fast food restaurants hire the bottom of the barrel, dregs of society. People with no education, no skills, no abilities, no motivation, and no desire to succeed. With the exception of a small percentage of those who use fast food as a stepping stone into the career world, most of their employees are career fast foodies because they will never ever ever be able to work somewhere else. No one wants them!
So if you think for one second that the answer is to raise the mandatory minimum wage that fast food companies pay their employees, do you think they’re just glady going to pay these minimalist performers? Fuck no! They are going to fire each and every one of them, they are going to hire much more qualified, pre-college, pre-career candidates… you know that small percentage I spoke of earlier.
Oh and your value meal? Your $1 menu will now be a $3 menu. You will be charged a drive thru fee. You will be charged a late night fee. You will be charged a dinner time high volume fee. You will be charged a fee for your cup. You will have to pay for your straws and napkins. And you will certainly have to pay for any ketchup, mustard, salt, mayonnaise or any extra side.
And guess what? YOU, the very person complaining about the current wage, will be the first person to whine about these new higher prices. Why? Because you are that fucking stupid.”
What are they supposed to do go get an education with the money they don’t have(not that they’d have the time to spare anyways)? They only barely make enough to continue being a slave to the system with practically no way to move up. Minimum wage increase was one of the main things MLK fought for and it’s stupid thats it hasn’t steadily increased while the cost of everything else goes up, it should be more like $15+ an hour if it matched the inflation of living expenses. They make like half that, a good portion are also ‘illegals’ and have no other option(or people with families). A $1 value menu sandwich at mcdonald’s would be increased in price by like 5 cents to pay a wage like 15 an hour, not $2 + other expenses. Think of the amount of stuff they sell per hour compared to the amount of people working there. Anyone who says this stuff seems like the occasional self-entitled ass we have to deal with in customer service who look down on us automatically because of the job. I’m really curious how you expect the majority of young adults who don’t have parents buying them an education start out on their path. Because the current minimum wage puts you so far in debt with school loans that it isn’t worth it. Most of them aren’t on welfare and food stamps, and if they do use them it’s because their pay is so small anyways… And they pay those same taxes for those as you do. Actually more white people who don’t even need those have them than people who work in the food industry. Seriously they need better pay considering they have to deal with people who think like this and practically spit in their face all day. But hey not everyone is born privileged and those who aren’t deserve shitty lives amIright
