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.

You ask for a link providing data that the minimum wage was set up to allow full time working Americans to support themselves without government aid, that this has been done in the past, and when I do provide that information, you say you don't have to acknowledge it?



Perfect example of your willful stupidity.

The proper term is confirmation bias. The stupid bitch only seeks out material which conforms to what she already believes and dismisses anything that doesn't.

If you say yes - that a company that buys labor should do so at a price that allows the labor to meet the basic prices of society (food, shelter), then you support raising the minimum wage.

I'll ask you again, can a company sustain itself if it cannot pay their workers a wage the workers can live on, or will such a company always require government assistance, either to the worker or the company? ?

The amount of people that make minimum wage in this country is miniscule compared to the amount of people grabbing there ankles due to the president and his piece of trash health care law.

Where is your outrage for them?

Minimum wage workers are already earning a wage that allows them to meet their basic needs.

As I have said many times before I prefer each market player to work this out between each other. The company involved knows this answer better than anyone not involved.Ya' know laissez-faire--not govt action or you from an Ivory Tower.

I have also said, that I reserve the right to not answer questions, but particularly questions that are designed to give me a false choice based you trying to box me in with them using two-valued logic.

Now take a hike. You've already wasted an hour or more of my time.

I've wasted your time? You wasted your time, if you feel that way.

LOL. You choose freely to read and respond to what I write. You choose freely to ignore all questions asked and to ignore the data I provide.


I haven't forced you to do anything.

Say I box you in all you want, until you can actually articulate how or why I have two valued logic, all you are doing is deflecting from you own inability to answer a simple question.

How many billions of dollars are spent of full time workers through food stamps, school lunch programs, health needs, ect ect ect?

For this statement to have any amount of truth in it, you would have to demonstrate that full time workers are not receiving government help to afford the basics.

You would also have to demonstrate that the current minimum wage pays above the poverty line, like the minimum wage did in the past.

You cannot do either of those, so your statement is completely and utterly false.

As I have pointed out many times, here in Cali they don't qualify for food stamps. School lunches are for dependents. "Health needs" is yet another vague term that doesn't help your argument.

You need to specify exactly what help that you are referring to or your point is meaningless.

No, you're wrong again. The federal poverty line for one person is $11,490. A person working 2080 hours a year at $8 an hour makes $16,640. Current minimum wage pays above the poverty line.

In 2011, 73.9 million American workers age 16 and over were paid at hourly rates, representing 59.1 percent of all wage and salary workers.1 Among those paid by the hour, 1.7 million earned exactly the prevailing Federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. About 2.2 million had wages below the minimum.2 Together, these 3.8 million workers with wages at or below the Federal minimum made up 5.2 percent of all hourly-paid workers.

Tried to post a link but I wasn't allowed bc I haven't been posting long enough apparently. But I'll provide it another way if you discredit the numbers.


The people, aged SIXTEEN and over, making minimum wage in this country make up 3% of the overall workforce. Again, is this number of people more important than the number seeing negative effects from the ACA?

OK. I forgot that you're kind of dumb. Let me help you. Do you support legalized abortion? If you do you wish to murder babies. If you don't you hate women. Which do you choose?
