Looks like miss big mouth could cut down on her fast food sampling.

.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

If the fast-food or restaurant min wage is signficantly increased, my daughter won't have work during breaks and summer any longer.

If we as a country have come to the point where working entry-level at a fast-food joint is a long-term career plan such that a "living wage" is required, and the government actually moves that direction legislatively, then economic disaster is just around the corner.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.

Your daughter is learning what an education and hard work will provide in the long run. Be proud of her.

Yup proud I am and thankful. She takes after her mom . She loves her job and the people there, misses it when breaks are over. Even if she's only home for weekend she'll ask to work if they have available and they always welcome her back.

I hope she doesn't loose that, and that her younger sisters and brother will have similar opportunities.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.

In-n-Out pays their employees a starting wage of $10.50/hr, offers excellent part-time and full-time benefits like flexible schedules to accommodate school and other activities, paid vacations, free meals, comprehensive training, and a 401k plan.

Yet I can go there and eat for less than most other fast food places, and the food is better. I wonder how they do it?? Since the "truth" is that paying your people well, treating them with respect, and offering good benefits means high prices, go figure?? They must be magic!!

Not always. If you have happy employees at a decent wage above min wage, then you have less retraining of new employees, less turnover, better customer service, happy customers = returning customers = reasonable profits = ability to pay decent wages.
.
But these protesters are demanding $15/hr.

$15 an hour...so they can F up my order when all they have to do is push a button of the picture of what I ordered?

problem is these folks think that working at McDonalds or Taco bell with no education at all, assembling burgers and squirting special sause out of a caulking gun should be enough to support thier entire family, pay for a 4 BR / 3B house plus the payment on that nice SUV.

so fine raise it...and watch everyone elses wage (those that actually busted thier butt to move up and get an education and skill set) rise as well along with costs for everything...putting them back where they started.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

So $10.50/hr with a good benefits package works, but $15 is a deal breaker? So you are not opposed to increasing wages, just not above a given point?

Back when I was punching a clock I spent 5 years as an apprentice to get to the point of making $15 an hour as a journeyman printer in a printers union in the Seattle area.

How does that stack up to a burger flipper with probably 2 weeks training getting the same wage?

Hard to figure.

ah c'mon dennis, of course an educated man as yourself who understands an inflationary economy would also understand that the purchasing power of $15 when you were punching a clock was far greater than the same purchasing power today. I mean who in today's economy would wait five years to make 15 bucks an hour?

They do. Every single day to this day. In this area a good carpenter is not going to make much more than $15.00 an hour. Thats it. Thats all he is going to get. My son is an excellent carpenter in big demand all over this area. But, he got out of it because he knows its a dead end around here. He found something else that he enjoys and is possible to move far beyond that meager carpenters wage.

Yes, of course, he could move to the big city and easily double his wages. But, that means he has to sell his house, upset his entire family and pull his teenagers out of school to start over in an entire different curriculum for them. He's is far smarter than that.

Hey, that's the way it is. In some of the trades, its a bitch in a lot of areas around the country. Its not just here. If you don't see it don't mean its not happening. I can testify to it with first hand knowledge.

BTW: I can also testify that I keep in touch with old friends in the printing industry on some forums and on Facebook. You think that $15.00 journeyman printers wage has gotten better the last 15 years? It has not. Its remained the same with very, very small cost of living increases yearly, higher health care costs, increased fuel costs, inflation and higher taxes to pay. They are loosing ground. Same as million upon millions of clock punchers all over the country.

Anyone anywhere that says this economy is improving is drinkin the kool aid. Way, way to much of it.

So a 50% pay increase. Wonder if 50% higher food prices will affect sales? Maybe they will need fewer employees. More automation.
So right now if it is $10 to grab a fast food lunch it becomes $15. Higher wages = higher inflation. Net gain = $0.00 Everyone else will have to get raises to cover the higher costs....Circle of inflation.

I'll admit I'm not a great pilot, but I can hover with the best of them.
