They either don’t learn, or they want every business to collapse
New York Communities for Change = ACORN
Nothing like a $10 or $15 Big Mac to spur business.
Why not just make min wage $1,000,000 per hour? Then we could all be millionaires!
Enjoy the unemployment line....
Why not? It worked so well for Hostess’s employees.
So a Big Mac, fires and a drink will run what - $10?
Sounds the framework for the “Fast Food Workers Full Un-employment Act”
They could move here to West Texas. Panda Express just opened up and is paying $12 for entry level jobs due to the oil boom.
Restaurants can’t keep people since they just go to the oil field.
Then again, they don’t want to have to do anything to better their situation even though that $12 will go much farther here.
When I first read this, I thought it said New York Communists for Change.
Since Obama’s re-election all we see is employees striking ... what is this?
With millions unemployed or under-employed they are LUCKY to have a job ...do they not understand this?
These morons crack me up. McDonald’s jobs weren’t meant to be jobs that would support a family. They’re entry level jobs for kids. As you get used to the work environment and your skills/education increase, you leave jobs like this and take higher paying jobs.
If I were McDonalds and the staff voted to unionize, I’d just close the unit.
Then the unions can deal with the out of work former employees.
Attempts have been made to sign them up to a petition demanding that workers be granted the freedom to join a union, and a raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 an hour.
$15 per hour? Why not $25 per hour? Screw that! Let’s go with $50 per hour!
Low-pay campaigners estimated in 2010 that an adult with one child living in the least expensive area of the city needs to make $21.85 an hour to be self-sufficient.It takes over $40,000 a year to be self-sufficient in the cheapest area of New York City? Get out of the city. That's what many companies are paying professionals per year.
If any worker making $7 and change honestly and truly wanted to make $15 and change (or more), and happened to have more than 2 neurons in their brain, they’d figure out they needed to perform whatever they were currently assigned to beyond perfection and stand out such that they would be noticed for a promotion to supervisor, management, transfer to the central office and, then, beyond.
People in Hell want Ice Water.
If you hate your job, go get a different job. If you touch a hot stove, you pull your hand away. You don’t stand there complaining about the pain.
Life sure is complicated when you’re stupid. It’s only complicated for the rest of us because stupid people get to Vote. November 6th turned theory into fact.
Walk off the job? I'd think they meant to quit and just fire 'em! They might think $8.90/hr is low for a no-skill menial job, but $0 is even less.
Kind of the problem of the future coming to a city near you..
Whether its union non-union 5, 10, 15, 20 or whatever the wage is what you get where you work...
The employees want the least the employee want the most..the government want everybody to just get along..
Its not capitalism, its not socialism or communism pushed by the political enemy, the problem as I see it is simply a loss of the concept of being an American.
You are proud to be an American or you are not..I'm sick of folks who claim their particular political persuasion is correct, and feel free to run down this great country irregardless of party.
I cant stomach the posts of so called conservatives cheering every factory closing and their elation at fellow Americans losing their jobs.
I'm far Right, and have left the GOP years ago. I fought for this country and I'll be dammed if I'm going to succeed, or put any party or region of this country over the basic fact that I am an American.
The idea of being a conservative first and an America second is bullshit ....
Burger workers want $15/hr? Let them move to North Dakota. They pay more than that and can’t find people because the oil fields scooped all the burger crowds up from there.
