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.

Yes, WalMart does this too.

Your tax dollars subsides these corporation's low pay.

If you can not make a profit off of a worker without relying on government assistance to make up what the basic necessities the worker's pay cannot cover, your business model is not sustainable.

Why do taxpayers want jobs in their community that cost their governments money through a social safety net?

Raise the minimum wage.

Since there's really no possible way to live in Chicago on 8.25/hr and have any money left over after paying for rent, it seems that it's pretty logical (and fair) she'd go get food stamps.


Altho don't they offer their workers free food there? Just wondering.

Will you please quit posting on a topic you're utterly retarded about? Wal-Mart saves the consumer in lower prices far more than they cost the consumer in taxes.

I think most of them give a free meal for each day the person works. That isn't much.

So you are in favor of the government using tax payer money to ensure its citizens have basic necessities such as food and healthcare, instead of the company paying higher wage?

To be honest, it can be a tough call at times. There need to just be places where people can go eat. You give many of these people food cards and they sell them for half price for drugs and do not feed there kids right.

Put that bottle of Old Crow back in your desk and head on down to an economics class.

You arent paid according to your worth as a person, you're paid according to how costly it would be to find and enact a replacement.

Because they, workers, are working there.

Why should someone who wants to work and does work 40 hours a week have to depend on the government to make up what his pay will not?

A 40 hour a week should be able to feed you, place a roof over your head, and get you basic healthcare, that is why.

Why shouldn't the company that employs them pay a wage that ensure a worker can afford the cost of the society that company is making a profit in?

While true, some people probably do deserve more money. Look at how much crap McD's employees turn out FAST.

People just abuse shit. I have a family member that makes a lot of money working a union job.

He just can't work year around.

I have seen him eat steaks off his Linc money and feed his kids hot dogs.

This argument is funny because we are paying what they are worth, its just that the tax payer is making up a chunk of it.

They compensate them. They don't have an obligation to provide someone working 40 hours a week enough income to support a family.
