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.

Well, considering my argument is to raise the minimum wage, which McD pays.

And I say, here look at this successful service sector business paying well above the minimum wage and not having any of the doom and gloom you numbnuts masturbate in fear to....

Therefore It is an example that high pay won't sink a business.

Do you understand the what example means yet?

I notice you aren't continually jerking off to all the other data I have provided, why?

How dare business have to pay for the labor they employ to make their profits.

That is just like sooo communist that businesses actually have to pay for labor.

I know, if we just allowed businesses to pay 1 dollar an hour this country will turn into a paradise overnight. I mean, 7.25 an hour is just to much cost for a business make billions a year. And businesses shouldn't even have to pay for labor anyway, that's like, socialist or something.

And the similarities between McDonalds and Costco's business models are....? What?

Man, you're failing hard at this. I'd let you off the hook with the whole Costco thing because it's obvious you can't get out of it, but I know you'll keep touting it as a role model for McDonalds.

Does McDonalds charge an annual fee?

Oh joy, another rambling post repeating the same stupid crap that you've been trying to sell in this thread for days. My biscuit maker analogy applies because it exposes the flaw in your communist ideology. A worker sells his labor to his employer, just as that biscuit maker sells his product to his customers. And no, my argument doesn't ignore families. It expects you to take care of yours financially. If you can't, there are welfare programs to help you do just that. No, your employer isn't obligated to pay for your poor life decisions. You wring your hands and desperately cry for a welfare state to be extended as far as it possibly can be. But, hey, you're not footing the bill, right? As long as you are spending other people's money you don't really care. Put your money where your mouth is. Start a company and pay your employers more than their labor is worth.

The reason this issue never gets much traction is that it's not a very important issue to the vast majority of voters. There's no crisis out there of impoverished people living on streets, committing crimes in the alleyways, robbing cars as they're parked at stoplights. Most Americans have it pretty good even if it's not their ideal world. And most don't want to pay higher prices for goods they buy.

This hits the nail right on the head.

This is also the reason Obamacare is having so much trouble with the electorate. The old way really wasn't so bad after all. Major public policy normally only changes when it hits "crisis" level with the electorate. Issues that don't rise to that level of alarm normally don't change much if at all.

I'm still wondering exactly what customers Obamacare was designed for.

While I support your idea in theory knowing how most of the companies operate they will stop\and have already stopped making workers full-time. Every big company keeps a certain segment of employees part time so they don't have to pay them benefits or better pay. What will happen is Walmart\McDonalds will be full of part-time workers, it is already trending that way now. They don't care about the employee they care about making money.

Here's the problem from an article about minimum wage in CA:

More than 15 million American workers earn the national minimum wage, which calculated over a 40-hour, 52-week working year, equals $15,080. This figure sits $50 below the federal poverty line for a family of two and compares with a median national salary of $40,350.

A family of two with both people working would then be $30,160.

He's being disingenuous, though. He uses the fact that McDonalds employees are on assistance as proof that they should be paid more. That ignores many of the situations that could be possible.
I can understand the concept that a single person should earn enough working 40 hours a week to afford life's basics (and I'm taking about renting a room in a house, taking a bus to work and eating Ramen for dinner), but McDonalds has no burden to keep a mother of two with no additional income above the poverty line.
And he's stated that a single mother of two should reasonably expect a 40 hour a week McDonalds wage to keep her off public assistance.
