Morning, Mr Fox!—
Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.
This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).
Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.

Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
And some fucking empathy for other people besides yourselves. Fuck you for thinking that having to pay a little extra for a cheeseburger is more important than someone being able to live off their wages.
Also, countries in Europe (and I believe some places in the US now as well) already pay $15/ the equivalent and guess what, those people didn’t lose their jobs and entry level jobs (as if these jobs would lead to a better one) still exist and the economies are better for it. Who would have thought?
Can someone please tell me when working for McDs was seen as a legitimate career decision for someone out of high school?
It and jobs like grocery stocker, fuel attendant at 7-11, or anything non management at Wal Schmuck, were NEVER meant to be anything but ENTRY level, unskilled, transient employment meant to assist someone looking for extra cash at the holiday times or while going to some form of other schooling.
Can you say INFLATION? Forget ever owning a home! Oh, and your gas and rent will nearly double, with milk hitting the $7/Gal mark when all is said & done.
That’s provided all of the places that could afford $15 don’t move to Alabama and hire 5 people instead of 4 at $9/hr.
I wanna be a hummingbird!—
I needed to post some calming pictures from up at my folks place where I’ve been “caretaking” for the week—
