Re: Blood suckers! "McDonald's Worker, Still Makes Minimum Wage After 20 Years Of Service"
At 80 IQ he probably isn't capable of making any more than minimum wage...for most people minimum wage is temporary and usually a teenagers job, but for the stupid it can be a career choice...I'm just impressed that he has a job and as long as he's had it!

There are 4 gas stations in a small town. One charges $.50 more per gallon but pays their clerks $3 per hour more than the others.

Where do you buy your gas?
 Quoting: Real list


Given the number of gallons pumped per hour, make that 5cents.
Yes very likely.

I'm in the middle, yes companies exploit workers, vote with your wallet, support decent places.

On the otherhand I know low wages workers who make little effort to improve things. Have a good marketable skill, but give up when a small handful of craigslist ads fail. I tell them to keep at it, they don't.
 Quoting: Fred 29293291


There are more than one clerk and $3 per hour translates into $4.50 when fica, holiday/vacations and any other benefits are taken into account.

But even if it was only $.05, when local stations drop a nickle under the others they get twice the customers.

One more example.

Most of us get haircuts. Most stylists either work on commission or 'rent' a chair in a salon. Whatever you pay them directly influences their income.

There are basically three tipping options:

No tip ever ... you are worse than Micky-dees

Tip based on performance (quality of service)... same as Mick-dees.

Tip based on stylists financial needs... You are a sincere bleed heart.

Re: Blood suckers! "McDonald's Worker, Still Makes Minimum Wage After 20 Years Of Service"
People enter the job market every day. Many have no skills, no work experience. These people sometimes must begin at the bottom as a burger flipper or similar job. These people get a benefit from that job other than their pay, they become a little more attractive to other employers.

If these entry level employers had wage increases based on senority it would encourage more people to hold on to these jobs rather than move on and create an opening for another beginner.

So higher pay would be a benefit to the 20 year worker, but it would cost not only the customer more but also other potential employees.

Another unintended consequence.

From what I can see, it's pointless to tell that story on this website. I didn't know this place was like this until today. They will call him a N-word who feels entitled to higher wages and handouts. They will say he should go out and get a better job and stop complaining. Personally I know that this is wrong and should not happen in America, but it's not surprising to me at all. People and the companies that they run are hateful, greedy and self-interested.
 Quoting: Mg 29663307


I have an old car for sale, asking $4000 but it's real worth is more like $2000.

But I am on a fixed income and I really need the money to pay rent and get some groceries.

Would you pay my asking price or are you one of the people you spoke of in your post? Are you that selfish that you won't pay me an amount I can live on?

Or should I sell it to you for $1000 because you have worked at McDonalds for 20 years and still make minimum wage?

If he gets a better job he will lose his food stamps, section 8, obamaphone, etc. He will actually have less take home pay if he doubles his salary.

I agree, did the gig as a teen too, indeed, alot of work for very little money. This is outrageous, they should get 2-5% raise a year, specially at the meager pay they are raking in.
After 20 years though, have to wonder, this poor sap didn't make manager or some shit?!? WTF man?

Then again, some people are janitors simply because they want to be a janitor... I got nothing against that. When you chose a career, you chose the paycheck that comes with it. It shouldn't be a green light for corporate scum to fuck them further though, pay your employees.

Re: Blood suckers! "McDonald's Worker, Still Makes Minimum Wage After 20 Years Of Service"
Don't expect any corporation to think of their employees over their profit margin. If you want to make more, and get more raises, you have to try to move up the chain. After 20 years, why isn't that person at least a manager? If you are waiting for the promotion to come to you, you might wait forever. You've got to actively seek it and you have to be good at it.

Or, go back to school and make yourself more educated in order to move up into upper management positions. No one will make you CEO if you are only master of the grill.

Yes, I think it's sad that a person is still making minimum after 20 years, but the corporation doesn't exist to make you rich. If they can get away with slave labor, they will happily do so. If you are unsatisfied, you need to figure out a way to move up. They won't do it for you.

McDonalds as never been known for any great career moves. Unless you go into management of open your own restaurant. You would think after twenty years, he would be thinking, wait a minute.
 Quoting: Blue Skies


lol, you have injected a bit of common sense into this thread. i have no sympathy for a person who would allow themselves to work for the same minimum wage for TWENTY YEARS?

is that mcdonald's fault or the employee's? i applaud the fact that he is working, but have to wonder why he never decided to move up and beyond?

mcdonalds is not a "blood sucker" they are what they are a fast food restaurant which provides scores of entry level positions for young people and retirees. if a person chooses to stay at "entry level" no one forces them to work there.

Most employers will pay anyone a set wage to do a set job. It is the job that has the pay attached to it, not the particular employee.

I might offer to pay $50 to have my lawn mowed. It makes no difference who does it as long as it's done right.

Where is the lack of respect for the worker? A company will pay a certain amount for a certain labor with certain working conditions. That's the deal. Take it or leave it.

Even in a union shop where every employee is considered equal some JOBS pay more than others. A painter might make more than an assembler or less than a welder. Where is the disrespect?

Different labor has different value. That is an economic reality.
