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.

That is disgusting.

Why should a company not pay the full cost a worker needs to meet the basic needs?
A company "should" pay as little as they can get away with to maximize profit.

That's the kind of stupid crap that makes me mad. A phone line is about $30 and nobody needs cable. This shows me that this individual needs to re-evaluate their needs.

Which is why we have a minimum wage.

Just because it is good for the company, doesn't mean its good for the community.

If a company cannot sustain a profit without paying a wage so low it requires government assistance, it is not sustainable. It will always require government assistance of some sort.

Okay, they can add that to the non existence payment of healthcare, the lack of child care needs, a flimsy food budget, no heat. Sounds like there is a lot of sacrifice there.

Even a junker van for 2,000 dollars will require a car payment for someone making minimum wage. How else are they to get things like kids around?

Get out of your bubble, you idiot. If you think goods, and services won't go up, you are as lost as you are stupid. Your source is BS, and the president of that organization was convicted of tax fraud. The biggest costs of running any business are labor, and materials. If one, or both go up, then the goods, and/or services of that company will increase in cost.

It's a foolish budget.

Of course not. These companies aren't community resource programs. But yes, those companies can continue to do exactly what they are doing as long as there is labor available, otherwise there would be no "need" (I'm not against it, but it's debatable) for minimum wage legislation in the first place. The biggest benefit that those social programs have is that they can help someone out while they maintain employment as they work on improving their situations. Way back in the early 90's there were fast food places in Colorado already starting people at $10 an hour with benefits packages. It was the only way they could get employees and they still had to shut down their drive through lines because they couldn't handle the business. They called it "coning" and I was surprised when they mentioned it. Supply and demand.

If the budget would have said that, then I would not have argued.

I get angry that cable/phone is seen as a priority over the things you just listed.

You raise prices. Mine stay the same. I earn more because of increase traffic.

Only minimum wage goes up. How many more people are willing to spend more money?

Prices reflect what the market will tolerate, not a simple equation of costs.

Also, you assume that increase labor cost automatically leads to an increase in total costs, without looking at factor that decrease costs, such as productivity, retention, and various other things such as safety or quality of service/product.

I provided a source. You could at least do the same.
