Funny you should mention Rocket Scientists. I have a friend who used to be exactly that. Now he`s a Rocket Scientist making $ an hour repairing fork lifts.Of course being that this is TN, a Miserable Right To Work State he works Twenty Nine hours a week and his benefit package consists of being allowed to show up and work his #$%$ off. Forty percent of McDonalds employees who used to work in occupations that paid a great deal more. Now those Decent Jobs are gone for good. Even if ALL of the Mc Donalds Employees were Dim Wits there is no excuse in the World for them to earn so little from a company that Profits off their labor to the degree they do. Treat your employees with respect and decency and pay them a decent wage and you create a great workplace where the employees will be proud to say they work at Mickey Dees instead of being ASHAMED. You are probably Republican which means my reply will fall on Deaf Ears.
PS Are you a Rocket Scientist?
The greedy lazy unions will pur America out of business just like they did with GM and Hostess and a bunch of other companies.
My neighbor's wife is from Bolivia. When she cooks, the food is very fragrant. However, I wouldn't eat the stuff even though the smell will have you salivating...I don't know what kind of animal meat she uses. She's so good that she makes pineapple juice from fresh pineapple by boiling the skins...I drand that & it was yummi.
People are too busy to cook. A quick visit to a fast food is just what the doctor ordered. If you look at the charts going back five years, there is always a bump up over the new year. Good luck with your 83.5. You are not going to see it.
Actually, MCD was giving some advice to employees who may not be rocket scientists. You have to admit if the only job you can get is working at MCD, you are not highly skilled, so the suggestions were trying to help the employees do better in life. So people like you can make fun of that, but some people would never think of returning gifts for cash to pay off debt. Getting out of debt is a great thing to do. In this day of credit cards, I am disgusted with how many people have huge balances on their cards. I pay mine off every month and never plan to pay interest on it, but in this day of "NOW", unskilled workers might run up huge balances and not consider how much interest they are paying. The credit card industry is like the mortgage industry was a few years ago. Not everyone was cut out to be a home owner, and not everyone needs a credit card.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Mcdonalds tried to hook these people with their garbage and the Bolivians rejected them and the garbage food they serve. Good for them because MCD has packed up and is leaving Bolivia with its tail between its legs like a whipped dog. Now it the rest of the planet came to is senses we could send this rotten company into bankruptcy.
I agree with you. I paid most of my college and I have worked two jobs. I also worked while my kids were in school and by damn, I am sick of these whiny people showing up and saying "We deserve more". The hell they do. They need to get job skills. If MCD or WMT can't find people to work for them, they will raise the starting wage. I will shop more at WMT and MCD now just to show my disgust with the union starting this #$%$. There is a good reason unions are dying. They are thugs.
Please stay out of the lives of the employees. Pay them to work and then end it there. Explain to them that is where it ends and stop trying to justify yourself. Explain that it is business and they are free to stay and enjoy their employment or quit if they like.
Give me a break. She can't pay her cell phone bill. She makes $8.25 an hour. It seems to me if you live at home, you don't have any cost and if you can't pay your cell phone bill, get rid of it. Years ago no one had cell phones so it is possible to live without one. She can't go back to school because she can't pay the cost of it. It sounded like she had school loans and she can't pay those. So, what in the heck is she planning to do the rest of her life? Duh! The union found a sucker.
If you don't like your wages do what Ray Kroc did ... risk everything you have and start your own restaurant and then pay yourself whatever you think you should be paid. This entitlement #$%$ is so stupid that any elementary grade student that knows simple math can tell you why you are not getting paid more. I am an owner and I want to pay market rates. I don't want to pay you whatever you want to be paid or think you should be paid. I risked everything to make enough to invest. I worked 80 hours a week or more and didn't take any holidays. I didn't get to see my kid grow up because I was always working. Now you stroll in and think you should have what I have? Really? BTW I slung pizzas for my first job and was grateful to have anyone hire me.
Upper managementat Mc Donalds has Holiday suggestions for their employees. First sell or return your Christmas Gifts to make ends meet, Cut your food into smaller pieces so it appears you have more food. There were other suggestions one TIP for employees was take TWO VACATIONS yearly for Health Reasons. That last suggestion doesn`t quite fit with the others. Moving along to the next GREAT ALL AMERICAN COMPANY,Wal Mart in Ohio is setting up donation bins in their entry way to collect Food Donations for their employees.These are Multi National Multi Billion Dollar Companies and this is what they offer their employees.
Placenta as only McDonald's can do. Ground up to hide all aspects of identifity. Each patty guaranteed to contain flavor enhancers, salt, coloring agents, binding agents, growth hormones, antibiotics, vaccines all under FDA acceptable limits of cow poo( and farmer poo when you stop to think of it). And you will say, "Uooo, it's so yummy."
