Not everyone has the talent nor desire to be management. People that are content with those jobs shouldn't live high on the hog, but they should earn enough to not require welfare programs to survive (granted they are full time workers).
Nobody should take a fastfood job expecting to pay for healthcare, rent/mortgage, cable TV, electric, cellphone and blah blah blah. It just does not make sense. Good for her for working, really, but when you take one of the lowest jobs in America don't act surprised when you can't afford anything. Furthermore don't expect the way the economy works to change to fit your lazy lifestyle. Working at McDonalds is a very lazy life choice for an adult.
