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.

Is that not your post, fool? If it is, which it is undoubtedly, then you lie like a rug/Obama. Besides that is a German site, and if I remember correctly, we are talking about the USA, aren't we???? So far, you have one other person in this thread that sides with you, and the rest are telling you how stupid you are, for thinking that a minimum wage hike won't have much of an effect on prices. If minimum wages are raised, then everyone else will want higher wages also, so this will go all the way up the ladder, to the top Einstein! I guess I need to repeat myself, because you must have missed it the first time. The TWO BIGGEST COSTS IN RUNNING A BUSINESS ARE LABOR, AND MATERIALS. There I put it in caps, so you wouldn't miss it this time. If minimum wages go up, then materials costs will also rise, because somebody is being paid to produce them. Are you still with me, and do you understand that? If you ran a business the way you talk on here, you'd be flat broke in less than 3 months, and in a welfare line some where, if you aren't already. I'm still trying to figure out how someone with only 1, or 2 working brain cells, like yourself can still manage to be alive. I would imagine that you consider walking, and chewing gum at the same time your biggest accomplishment in life.

BTW, the president of iza.org was convicted of tax fraud, just in case you forgot.

Okay... But Sara Lemos is the Author of the study.

I don't know why that simple fact elludes you.

And you need to go to an economics class.

Prices represent what the purchaser will pay, not the super simple equation of costs you think it is.

Here, some successful business guy says something similar :

Quote:
Costco CEO Craig Jelinek, March 2013: “We pay a starting hourly wage of $11.50 in all states where we do business, and we are still able to keep our overhead costs low. An important reason for the success of Costco’s business model is the attraction and retention of great employees. Instead of minimizing wages, we know it's a lot more profitable in the long term to minimize employee turnover and maximize employee productivity, commitment and loyalty. We support efforts to increase the federal minimum wage.

Try understanding economics and try looking at actual data instead of parroting what Rush tells you.

It's too bad we ignore the reality of the situation and wish some for pleasant utopia where only high school kids work in the service sector. And we should totally base policy on what we wish, instead of reality.

I mean really, the nerve of these losers finding work and trying to full time.

Yeah, they're obviously doing everything right! It all took a lot of hard work and careful planning!

You just got caught lying, or deflecting, and neither one was a good choice. If I do not trust your link, then I damned sure won't trust the study, which should be easy to understand, unless you are living with one working brain cell, like you seem to be doing. I do not listen to Rush, you stupid moron. You are just parroting, and projecting liberal academia studies, which are worthless, unless you run out of TP. I said this once, and I'll say it again. "Lies, damned lies, and statistics" is a phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments. It is also sometimes colloquially used to doubt statistics used to prove an opponent's point.

If they were meant for high school kids they'd be hired first. They're not because employers would prefer to hire ladies like this one.

Because you're the dumbass that wants the government to force companies to overcompensate workers for unskilled labor, and somehow doesn't comprehend why that's an authoritarian standpoint. Like I said, you want employees to be paid more than they're worth? Start a company and do it. Or just put your money where your mouth is and start buying my $600 biscuits.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

Looks like she was hired at 16.

You have to be doing something wrong to be making minimum wage in fast food after ten years at the same place.

Mr. Loneiguana, I agree with you that the price is not a super simple equation that scales in direct proportion to increased labor costs.

On the subject of economics classes though, I think that all other factors being equal, increased labor costs would force some firms to hire / retain fewer workers. To maintain a minimum working staff, they may be forced to raise prices. Keep in mind that the demand for labor depends on the marginal product and the marginal revenue product for each worker to be kept or hired. So changing wages would shift the labor curve.

On another somewhat simplified note, increased costs for labor could cause some firms to no longer remain in business. In this case, depending upon barriers to entry, fewer firms would be able to offer the product or service. Depending on how much competition there was in the market, prices could also increase.

That's my basic understanding. As a disclaimer, I am no expert and I could be totally wrong.

Having a price floor is less government interference in the market then subsidizing profitable companies employees. Why do you want the government infrastructure and bureaucracy that is necessary for giving your tax payer money to full time workers?

Why are full time employees worth less poverty wages? Why is any job worth less than poverty wages? The company is making a profit off that employee, right?

Why do you ignore historical data that shows a family with two kids could survive on Minimum wage?

Why should the minimum wage be less than it has historically?

Why do you keep bringing up your nonsensical biscuit stupidity and not actually address the data?

I mean congratulation, you are another one that is using a logical fallacy every comp/rhetoric beginner student has learned not to make.
