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 a company cannot make a profit off of an employee without paying a wage that requires government assistance to survive, they will not be sustainable. This socialization of losses will collapse.
I am going to practice making biscuits from scratch until they are incredible. Then I am going to sell them on the street corner for $600 each to maintain my lifestyle. You've got my back, right? Pass that law!

Come on man. I can only make three of these biscuits a month. I need to sell them for $600 each to make ends meet. Who is with me?

Sample worksheet to get start?

Because there is sooo much wiggle room.


And it was created by Visa For McDonalds.


Quote:
A budgeting guide created by Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) to teach McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE:MCD) employees how to budget surfaced on Monday illustrating the impracticality of living off minimum wage.

While the guide is intended to help employees budget their income, it unintentionally demonstrated how unlivable minimum wage is through the sample budget presented in the guide. On page four of the document is a sample monthly budget that assumes an employee has a second job on top of working at McDonald’s. Where the document gets really outrageous is the assumption that health insurance is only $20 per month, rent is $600 per month, and the worker spends $0 on heating.

The real cost of living is much higher, with individual health insurance averaging $215 in the United States, according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. However, the Wall Street Journal reported in 2010 that McDonald's offered a plan that cost $14 per week, with benefits capped off at $2,000, and another plan at $32 per week that capped off at $10,000 coverage. However, with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as Obamacare, McDonald’s is expected to spend even more to meet the health care law’s requirements to cover employees.

McDonald's Minimum Wage Budget Ignores Tax Credits, Food Stamps And Reality

Quote:
Does anyone seriously believe a worker earning around the $7.25 an hour federal minimum wage can discover the “key to…financial freedom” by keeping a budget journal and exercising a little spending discipline?

That’s the conceit of a web site and pamphlet produced for employees of McDonald’s—a rightly ridiculed attempt to show that by tracking every purchase down to a $2 soda (and, oh yeah, working two jobs and paying just $20 a month for health insurance) someone earning $1105 a month in a primary job can not only make ends meet, but save $100 a month to realize long term financial goals. Turns out that the fast food giant has been offering this sort of happy meal “financial literacy” program in concert with Visa Inc. and Wealth Watchers International since 2008. Conveniently, the left leaning ThinkProgress.org web site brought the McBudget to the public’s attention last week—just in time to give a boost to a July 24th National Day of Action being held to mark four years since the last federal minimum wage increase and press for another.

Four years? That’s nothing. In fact, Congress hadn’t raised the minimum wage for a decade before Democrats took over the house in 2007 and pushed through a three-step increase, paired with some small business cuts to win President George W. Bush’s signature. Moreover, as this Congressional Research Service fact sheet shows, the purchasing power of the minimum wage has been on a general downward path since 1968, when it stood at $1.60—the equivalent of $10.70 in May 2013 dollars.

Few people could make ends meet on a job paying today’s minimum wage and most minimum wage earners don’t have to do so. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 24% of the 3.6 million workers paid minimum wage or less in 2012 were teens, meaning they likely are still supported by parents. (Another 26% were under 25.) Moreover, as the conservative Heritage Foundation points out, “a sizeable number” of minimum wage workers over 25 are married and working part time for a second income.

Still, there really are grown-ups earning minimum wages and struggling to support families—folks like Carman Iverson, a 28-year-old McDonald’s worker and mother of four interviewed here by Forbes contributor Laura Shin. But for the most part, they aren’t living off minimum wage alone. That’s because the ground such workers have lost to inflation has been made up by growing federal income supplements in the form of refundable tax credits and food stamps (now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.)

Let’s do the numbers for that bastion of minimum wage employment, Texas, home to 12.7% of all workers in the U.S. paid minimum wage or less in 2012. Since people who earn the minimum wage usually don’t get paid vacation, let alone paid sick days, paid lunch breaks or health insurance, we’ll assume this minimum wage employee soldiers on through every ache, pain and sniffle, never taking time off and putting in 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year. That works out to $15,080 a year, or $1256 a month, or $290 a week. On that, in 2012, a worker would have paid $633 in Social Security tax (rising to $935 for 2013 with the expiration of the temporary payroll tax cut) and $219 in Medicare taxes. Let’s also assume she had no federal income taxes withheld and since this is Texas, there’s no state income. Here’s what Intuit’s Turbotax software shows the worker would have owed–or gotten back—from the Internal Revenue Service, based on her filing status and exemptions and assuming a standard deduction.

If she’s single and childless, she would owe $259 in federal income taxes, meaning, on just a minimum wage job, she has graduated out of the 47% who, as Mitt Romney famously observed, pay no federal income tax.

With one child, by contrast, she would get a $4,169 tax refund from the government, composed of a a $3,169 earned income tax credit and a $1,000 “additional child credit”—a refundable child credit for parents who owe no income tax which was created as part of President Obama’s 2009 stimulus and was extended through 2017 as part of January’s fiscal cliff tax deal. With two children, there’s a $4,981 check from Uncle Sam—a $3,169 EITC and $1,812 in additional child credits, which, like the EITC are computed on a unique formula that looks at both earnings and family size.

And with three or four children? The IRS should send a $7,703 check—the maximum $5,891 EITC for 2012 and $1,812 in additional child credits. That works out to a supplement of $3.70 an hour for someone with three or four kids—a better than 50% wage boost. So a hardworking burger flipper, or cashier, or home health care aide is making $10.95 an hour—it’s just that other taxpayers (including, ironically, that childless minimum wage worker) are paying $3.70 of it. She also should be getting food stamps–about $400 worth a month for a minimum wage worker with two kids, and more for a larger family.

No, minimum wage workers still can’t easily make ends meet. But this government help puts the declining purchasing power of the minimum wage in a slightly different light. The key here is that the EITC (unlike minimum wage hikes) has traditionally had bipartisan support. Moreover, it’s regarded by many economists (for example, Chrisine Roemer, who chaired President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers) as a better way to help the working poor than raising the minimum wage, which economists have traditionally believed reduces the number of jobs available to entry level, lower-skilled workers. More recently, some research has suggested that small increases in the minimum wage have no effect on employment, which means the EITC might be subsidizing not only the working poor, but also low wage employers like McDonald’s and Wal-Mart who would otherwise have to pay more for the same labor. As economist and liberal columnist Paul Krugman put it in February,“raising the minimum wage is a way to make the EITC work better, ensuring that its benefits go to workers rather than getting shared with employers.”

Of course even if all the pointy headed economists were to suddenly agree that the optimum national minimum wage was, say $9, an increase couldn’t clear today’s Republican controlled House. Yes, living wage activists may have some successes in Blue states and cities—just this month, the Washington D.C. City Council voted to require big box retailers to pay at least $12.50 an hour, up from the current $8.25 city minimum. (But if D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray signs the hike, Wal-Mart has said it will cancel three planned stores in the city and review three others already under construction. )

Meanwhile, living wage activists would be wise to acknowledge the income supports that have grown up around a shrinking minimum wage and to spend more of their energy defending them. After all, the same House Republicans who unanimously voted in March against raising the minimum wage have also just passed a farm bill stripped of the traditional funding for food stamps and are likely to demand deep cuts in this program in a deal with the Senate. They’re also pushing a 24% cut in the IRS’ budget. What’s IRS funding got to do with minimum wage workers? It could (among other things) harm the IRS’ ability to fight the ongoing epidemic of identity theft tax fraud and lead to further deterioration of already poor taxpayer service. Both developments are likely to have a disproportionate impact on EITC recipients, who already have to wait months for their checks if their identities are stolen and (as National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson has pointed out) are already, in too many cases, denied earned income tax credits they rightly deserve. In the real world, that’s a bigger threat to minimum wage worker’s finances than silly financial McPlanning advice.

I know right! You deserve your trophy. By gosh when you were growing up everyone got a trophy! There are no winner's or losers! Effort doesn't matter! Everyone's a winner! You should go occupy something! Mommy and daddy told you that you were special and that sitting on the bench is just as important as playing in the game! Why won't these companies treat you like mommy and daddy? Those mean people need to pay up!!!!

It's a goofy budget. But of course you use it as if it were relevant. Seagull poster.

Artificial wage inflation?

Now you are just entering stupid.

Hey, numbnuts, inflation has gone up quicker than the minimum wage.

Got any other myths for me to knock down?

You're knocking nothing down but yourself. I get, I get it. You're stupid and you say stupid things. It's cool. I can count on you to support my biscuit legislation though right? It's not about getting compensated according to any rational process related to the worth of your labor. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. I need $600 per biscuit to make it worth my time. Are you in or out?

Maybe you should make your own budget instead of relying on your employer to do it for you?
