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.

A 40 hour a week should be able to feed you, place a roof over your head, and get you basic healthcare, that is why.

Why shouldn't the company that employs them pay a wage that ensure a worker can afford the cost of the society that company is making a profit in?

The problem is that with some people abusing stuff to death, some good people get shorted in the process.

I agree with this when you see people continually pop out kids to take advantage of the system.

There is a fine line though.

How hard will it be for me to find someone with the skill set to assemble hamburgers? That's why the prevailing wage isn't $20 an hour.

It's unskilled labor. It requires no skills so the pool of people who are qualified is huge. Therefore, wages are low.

If I'm going to hire a commercial airline pilot the variables are different.

I don't see any abuse here really.

McDonald's workers are willing participants in the employment situation. McDonald's offers a certain scheme of work for a certain amount of compensation. The workers are free to politick and lobby and use whatever tools they have to try to better their situation.

If they don't like their wage, they have options. They can work more hours, find another or a different job, change their life situation so they don't need to work, go to school, stop working and draw public benefits. There are options.

It's only when someone refuses to take care of their own business themselves, when they sit downnon the floor and throw a fit demanding legislative action to change the game for everyone everywhere, because they refuse to respond and care for themselves - its only then that I get angry.

Pay your own way. Simple.

We are in agreement here.

I am saying don't have 5 kids and get on every public aid program that exists.

If people need to eat at times, it can be a different story.

I just hear so many stories of people selling their food benefits to individuals, small restaurant owners, etc.

As long as WalMart is saving consumers far more in prices than they burden them in taxes, then of course. Do you understand economics?

It is easy to make fun of McD's, but my god so many people just live on that shit. I go to Hardees here a lot because it is better stuff, but it takes several times as long to get your food.

There is some value to customer service people versus some dumb bitch making $12 an hour filing paperwork. It's all relative.

Why do taxpayers want jobs in their community that cost their governments money through a social safety net?

Raise the minimum wage.
No, this is the problem:

Nancy Salgado... has worked at a Chicago McDonald's for 10 years and makes $8.25 an hour


Making minimum wage at a fast food place after ten years is a choice. A choice made by Nancy Selgado. The company should not be forced to compensate her beyond her worth. That's ridiculous.

It is hard to judge a person's worth at any given job. Most of these owners own 8-10 franchises and need solid workers to keep making a fortune.
