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.

Holy cow, I think you may be on to something here.

Again, you're still ignoring the wealth redistribution from tax payers to shareholders that is essential to companies like McDonalds and WalMart's business model and blaming the workers for low wages. 'Murrrica Wooooooo

My dad has a pretty big farming operation, always has another job off season, sometimes two. My step mother just juices him to death.

Never home when I was kid.

Pride is the answer. You can lay around waiting for someone to take care of you or you can get up and do something. Your choice.

Did you ever consider the possibility that this made you stronger?

Again you are not listing any examples of this wealth redistribution.

True.

Which is why we need to accept that some people are going to always be lazy and poor.

What would a McD worker's hourly wage have to be to not qualify for food stamps?

Yes, I am. Paying your workers so little that they have to rely on social welfare is redistributing money paid by tax payers to support those people to shareholders because those companies are operating on reduced/welfare subsidized employment costs.

She's been working there for 10 years. How is she not "making it"?

She's apparently provided for herself well enough that she hasn't had to change her situation over the last decade.

In some countries it will be higher and in some it will be lower.
Unless you argue that they are paying 0 in US taxes, the argument stands.

No, you aren't. You're just blaming large companies for our welfare system because they won't overpay for unskilled labor.

To maintain the level of profitability (which drives share prices and dividends) that those companies enjoy currently, they use low labor costs to get there. Their business model in the US is dependent on our safety net to have the level of profitability that they do. The shortfall between what they pay and what their employees receive in welfare to survive is pure wealth redistribution from the tax payers to shareholders.

No, it's not. You really can live off of a minimum wage job. It's a standard of living below what I chose for myself but you can do it.
