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.

Listen, if you don't have anything actually constructive in a rebuttal, just don't try.

I get it. The only way for you to argue against a company adequately paying an employees is by using extreme, lame, nonsensical tripe.

I'm sure that gets you off. But it just bores me.

There is a thread worth of discussion that was going on before you flew in and shit on it. I feel sorry for you that you're bored with actual conversation and feel the need to result to a lame ass posting style. Not my fault though. Why aren't you supporting my quest to be overcompensated for my biscuits?

I assume by overcompensation, you mean that you don't think these employees deserve a higher pay.

Completely ignoring the fact that these employees pay is subsidized by the tax payer, there for we are compensating them with higher pay. They are being paid more, with tax payer dollars.

They aren't making only 8.00 an hour. They are making that plus your tax money an hour.

Quote:
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.

Again, any other myths for me to knock down?

They are working unskilled labor jobs that require no education. They are earning $8 an hour. They are being given money by our government. If you have a problem with the tax code (or the welfare system) then work to change it. It's not a myth, it's two separate issues that you cling to because your argument is irrational.

Do you not realize that if the minimum wage is raised, that everything we buy will go up dramatically? These companies will make their profits one way, or another, and if minimum wages are raised, then all consumers will be charged more for all goods, and services. It's not as simple as raising the minimum wage, like you seem to think.

Good Good. The price increase myth.

Another easy one to knock down.

In a free market, competitive economy, the last thing a company does is raise prices.

Quote:
Despite the different methodologies, data periods and data sources, most studies found that a 10% US minimum wage increase raises food prices by no more than 4% and overall prices by no more than 0.4%. This is a small effect.

I don't have a problem with the social safety.

I have a problem with our culture that believes someone who works two jobs and forty hours a week should also qualify for food stamps.

That is disgusting.

Why should a company not pay the full cost a worker needs to meet the basic needs?
