McDonald's helps workers get food stamps.

McDonald's helps workers get food stamps

Quote:
Nancy Salgado, who has worked at a Chicago McDonald's for 10 years and makes $8.25 an hour, asked the McResource representative a number of questions related to getting assistance to pay for her heating bill, her groceries and her sister's medical expenses. Salgado told the representative that she was recording the call for her sister.

The helpline operator never asked Salgado how much she made per hour, and how many hours per week she worked beyond the fact that she was a full-time employee. But she said that Salgado "definitely should be able to qualify for both food stamps and heating assistance."

The representative then pointed her toward a number of resources in Chicago, such as food pantries and a program that would help cover some of her heating bill. She said she would email her specific phone numbers and programs.

The operator also explained that the McResource line is available to help McDonald's workers who need help navigating the process of getting public assistance. The helpline's phone number is posted in fliers at many McDonald's locations.
Nice of McDonalds to help get its employees on the gov't teet.

If our lawmakers allow businesses to pay less than a living wage, and based on income these employees qualify....I guess I don't understand the real problem here.

Unless you want to make an argument for raising the bar for qualifying for food stamps? Which is fine; but don't do so under the guise of this is somehow a terrible thing for McDonald's to be doing...you should just debate the food stamp program on its own merits.

Raise Minimum wage = Poor people get hit hard due to raised food prices


Leave It Alone = Upper Middle Class and Above pay for the poor through government programs


Which one is better?

Will other companies that are currently paying a living wage, reduce wages and use gov't programs to subsidize that income for its workers? Just give them a flier with the numbers to call and tell them what to say.

Your pay is dictated by how common the skill set is that's needed to do your job.

So she has worked at McD's for 10 years and still only makes minimum wage? Perhaps that might be an issue? You know, look for a better paying job? Figure out how to move up at this particular McD?
