And why they need $15/hr.
I recently saw on Facebook where someone had posted that s/he would gladly pay an extra $.50 for an order of fries if it meant that the server would not have to work three jobs to survive.
Serving fries at McDonald’s was never meant to be a career position. High school kids saving for college or a first car as well as getting both work and social experience seemed to be the target employees years ago. I look at $15/hr this way…
Say the McDonald’s employee is getting $10 per hour and a burger costs $2.00. That amounts to 20% of the hourly wage. The law changes and McDonald’s must now pay $15 per hour. To offset the increased expense in payroll – generally 80% of Cost of Sales – McDonald’s must now charge $3.00 for the same burger. Guess what percentage that is of the employees’ hourly wage?
That’s if the associate still has a job.
Man’s ingenuity. John Deere would have done away with slavery just as effectively as Lincoln. (Thank you to the person who first quoted me that, if you’re reading this.)
Without further editorializing, I pass along the contents of an email that was sent to me. It was entitled, “Detroit – the city that Obama saved.”
Starting with her.
It’s a wonder this forgery was ever caught.
The email ended… “Want more of the same? Vote Hillary in 2016.”
