If this was some where else I might agree with you. The volume of business is enormous. I read once people who owned a 24 hour pizza shop in Penn station made 20 million dollars a year. Since it is in the most expensive place to live in the world. The cost of transportation for workers is outrageous. Everything in NY city is nuts. I lived there. Just imagine how many times more money than an average Burger King or McDonalds in a city of 15 million. If these fast food places want quality workers they should give them a raise. IMHO.
It’s a fast food joint. They’re all over NYC. There’s probably one within walking distance of Pam’s home. A couple of my kids worked fast food in high school. You know why? They could walk or ride their bikes there. And I live in suburban Philadelphia. If you decide to make fast food your career then you need to get into management if you expect a living wage. Otherwise, it’s a job for kids and retired people. 8 years and still a regular shift worker? Shame on her.
