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.

It is also sometimes colloquially used to doubt statistics used to prove an opponent's point.
I've listed numerous studies from various of sources.

I invite you to tell me why each one is wrong.

Try not to acknowledge the data though. I don't want you to think. Just give me some baseless rant.

Yup.

Who is more willing to stick around at a job, put up with B.S. and work hard?

The teenager who maybe doesn't need the job?

Or the person with a kid or two trying to make ends meet?

And all of "your" studies were likely done by very liberal socialist people, so go figure they would say what you think is right. Just because something looks good on paper, or a computer, doesn't mean that is how it will work in reality. I'm not buying into any of your studies that support your beliefs. If I could post links, I could find, and post studies that refute all of the studies that you've put up, but what good would that do? You are such a communist in the way you think, that anything I post that refutes what you believe will all be BS anyways. On that note, you can take your studies, fold them in half, shove them up your ass sideways, and set them on fire.

BTW, my wife is a manager for a large grocery store chain all across the USA, so I happen to know quite a bit about labor/materials costs, and their affect on the prices we pay. Here's something for you to mull over, although it probably won't do any good, since you are such a bigoted fool. Raising the minimum wage will not just cause a pay increase on those at the bottom, but it will cause everyone on up to want a pay increase. What do you think all of these pay raises will do? It damned sure will not cause prices to go down, on the goods, and services we purchase. It will most likely cause some work hours to be cut, or jobs to be lost, because the employer is now paying more, for labor, and materials. How many jobs have been lost in the last 15-20 years, because of labor costs in the USA? In the last 10 years we have lost 2.7 million jobs to China, because of high labor costs here, and you are still dumb enough to want to raise minimum wages. Look how many companies have moved, or outsourced stuff to foreign countries, like China, Taiwan, India, Mexico, and so on. If you can't see this, you are blind, and stupid, but I'm sure you've heard that many times before. You think your idea is good, because your "heart" is in the right place. Well I have an idea, that you don't have a heart, and you've got your head so far up your ass, that you need a window in your stomach, to see where you're going.

Thanks for not even looking at the data before dismissing it has part of some evil liberal plot.

I asked you for a baseless rant, and you gave it too me. Thanks for not disappointing.

Oh, and you don't get to call the person who wants full time workers off government assistance a communist. See, that would be you guys. You guys want the government to provided for people instead of people's full time jobs.

Also, perhaps within your next baseless rant you could explain why, if the minimum wage, when at its peak adjusted for today's dollars was above 10.50 and could place a family of two kids outside the poverty line, why shouldn't the minimum wage have kept up with inflation and why shouldn't the minimum wage, like in the past, give someone working full time income above the poverty line?

hahaha!! Liberals...

No one working at McDonald's should make more than minimum wage.

Why??

Because it's a crap product. They sell $1 'McChicken Sammiches' through a window.

I worked at a McDonald's when I was 16, 17...

then, I wanted more money, so I worked as a server in a restaraunt that actually cooked food. I also did some roofing, concrete work, etc. before doing customer service for Dtv., then I inventoried drug stores for a while...

point is, it's a shit job with a shit product that should never be considered a career.
Case closed.

I'll repeat this as much as I have to:

The minimum wage use to be able to put a family of two kids outside poverty range.

The minimum wage now requires government assistance to place the same family outside the poverty range.

Why shouldn't minimum wage have kept up with inflation and still allow a family of two kids to meet the basic needs of survival without government assistance?

You guys can judge, and talk about this shouldn't be a career all you want. It doesn't matter. Whether someone works there 6 month or 10 years, the JOB is what requires the government assistance. The next person to take the job will still be taking your tax dollars. And the next person. And the next person.

Hey, I don't disagree with you, in principle.

but the 'inflation' is also indicitive of society that has changed its priorities :

I made $13,700 last year...which is LESS than $8.25/hr@40/wk.

I make it work, and the only gov't assistance we get is Medicare for my daughter, and I pay the state of MI for that.

I just...live simply.

You don't seem to understand that the world does not operate based on these liberal studies you keep touting. Your studies are just like communism, where everything looks good on paper, and is a huge failure when put into practice. If these ideas did work, then why did communism fail in the USSR? Communism creates more suffering among the people, than any other form of government. Look at where our country is now, with all of the liberal/communist ideas in place.

Why someone can't make it on minimum wage is all due to your liberal policies in place in the USA. In the last 40-50 years the Dumbocrats have spent uncontrollably, taxes are ridiculous, we have an excessively big government, which has led to the massive debt we now have, trying to keep up with your big government ideas, and the Feds are printing money like it's a Monopoly game. The dollar has been devalued because of this, which has led to higher prices in the real world, and yet you still think everything should operate off of your liberal studies. Inflation is a real bitch. You support big government/liberalism, yet your policies over the last 40-50 years have put us in this spot, and you still want to use big government to force the raising of the minimum wage, which is just another form of liberal big government tyranny. You can't have your cake, and eat it too, but you continue to try to do it. This is communism in a nut shell, and also paints you as a huge hypocrite. Now go find a study that shows how this communism that you support, had nothing to do with the shitty place this country as a whole is in, because of communist ideas. It's pretty easy to see that you are butt hurt, because you support the very policies that have, and are killing this country. Not to mention the fact that these same policies are hurting you, and you are too much of an idiot to realize it, but they look so good on paper. ROTF

Case closed.

It's important to remember that we should be appreciative there are ladies like this who show up everyday to serve our food at that wage. I suppose we could wish that all stoned HS kids would be slapping our food together in between pot breaks out by the back dumpster but is that what we want?

Be careful what you wish for, because the next thing you know, IboneIguanas will be wanting the government to pay for the pot that they smoke.

Again, you are the one supporting the government subsidizing these employees, not me.

You are stupid. You keep using the word communism and I don't think you know what it means.

Showing that the minimum wage at one time was 10.50 is not a "Liberal Study", that is a fact.

The rest of your nonsense doesn't even deserve comment, as usually. If you think liberal policies have been in play for the last 30 years, you are delusional.

Of course, as usual for your rants, you don't actually articulate a why for any of this. Perhaps you could point towards specific examples of which liberal policy and why it has to do with the minimum wage. Also, explain how wanting full time employees off government assistance is communism. And then perhaps explain why minimum wage shouldn't keep up with inflation when prices do.

You are a talking point machine... Hannity is that you?

Communism creates more suffering among the people, than any other form of government. Look at where our country is now, with all of the liberal/communist ideas in place.

Why someone can't make it on minimum wage is all due to your liberal policies in place in the USA. In the last 40-50 years the Dumbocrats have spent uncontrollably, taxes are ridiculous, we have an excessively big government, which has led to the massive debt we now have, trying to keep up with your big government ideas, and the Feds are printing money like it's a Monopoly game. The dollar has been devalued because of this, which has led to higher prices in the real world, and yet you still think everything should operate off of your liberal studies. Inflation is a real bitch. You support big government/liberalism, yet your policies over the last 40-50 years have put us in this spot, and you still want to use big government to force the raising of the minimum wage, which is just another form of liberal big government tyranny. You can't have your cake, and eat it too, but you continue to try to do it. This is communism in a nut shell, and also paints you as a huge hypocrite. Now go find a study that shows how this communism that you support, had nothing to do with the shitty place this country as a whole is in, because of communist ideas. It's pretty easy to see that you are butt hurt, because you support the very policies that have, and are killing this country. Not to mention the fact that these same policies are hurting you, and you are too much of an idiot to realize it, but they look so good on paper. ROTF

You need to read a book.
