“These morons crack me up. McDonalds jobs werent meant to be jobs that would support a family. Theyre 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.”
What higher paying jobs would those be?
Manufacturing was dismantled and shipped to a location where labor can be had for pennies on the dollar or skilled tradesman jobs were overrun by illegal immigrants.
BaraqaClaus will put a boot on the fast food chains throats, so that these folks can get the wages they’re asking for. More Social Justice.
Even in the food industry, there are higher class places that pay more than McDonalds.
I once knew a waitress that waited tables at a budget restaurant chain. After she had been there for a few years, I suggested she could make more money by brushing up on her skills and applying at a higher class restaurant.
Why do the same amount of work, for tips based on $7.50 meals, when you could be getting tips on $27.50 to $150.00 dollar meals?
I am sympathetic to your argument, because outsourcing is something I’ve been against for the last twenty years.
People need only take a look at our work environment these days, to see what outsourcing has accomplished.
I consider it downright evil.
I’m a small remodeling contractor, and there are few young, hardworking English speaking Americans who are willing to work hard in the trades. They want to make $25 an hour for standing around. There is always a large group of Hispanic guys in the Home Depot parking lot who will work cheap. I refuse to hire them because I refuse to hire illegals, and I would never bring someone who I don’t know to a customer’s home. For the most part, I work by myself, taking and pricing jobs accordingly. Hispanic labor has driven labor rates down.
