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 very big company that I used to work for has put on a 3 year wage freeze, and has taken all benefits away from the employees, and yes that includes FMLA, health insurance, and sick leave. But you still think we should have a $15 per hour minimum wage???? You are as dumb a person as I've ever dealt with. You don't seem to understand that the companies will protect their bottom line, no matter what. They won't pay the wage increase, but it will come from some where else, whether it's employee benefits getting the ax to make up the difference, or increased consumer prices. These companies are owned by individuals, and their sole purpose is to provide goods, and/or services, and make money. It's funny how the fast food places around here all have comparable prices, yet you think it's only driven by what the consumer will pay. You seem to forget that they wouldn't sell these products at those prices, if they weren't making money. Raising minimum wage, and all other wages would affect all fast food joints in pretty much the same way, so we would see a dramatic increase on the prices of all the products. Get out of your communist ivory tower, and see what's going on in the real world.
You don't have to keep repeating you don't understand how capitalism works. I get that.

A dramatic price increases leads to less goods being sold. If a company is protecting their bottom line, why voluntary decrease the amount of goods sold by dramatically increasing wages? They won't.

You are stupid.

Nope, you are the idiot. You can't seem to understand that companies are already taking steps to protect their bottom lines, even if it means taking all benefits away from their employees. The sad thing is, there is no minimum wage hike in place to cause it, either. Things are already turning to shit, and you want to more than double the minimum wage??? The worst part of this is, you seem to think it can be done with no ill effects. Thinking like that, or a lack of thinking proves how badly f'ed up liberals/Demoncrats are.

Stop being stupid.
If you provide a paycheck stub they use a formula based on how often you get paid to determine monthly income. One if you're paid twice per month, a different one if you're paid once every two weeks. The formula they use for people who provide a tax return is yearly income divided by twelve. Stop being childish. I'd tell you to stop being stupid, but I don't think you can. It doesn't also require a paycheck. Those are two different forms of verification.

I don't know what is so hard to understand about the fact they DONT require you to submit proof of yearly income, so therefore they DONT base food stamps off of yearly income and your simple divide by 12 equation that doesn't factor in actual hours worked.

If you can prove you are under the poverty line with a tax return, they will take it. But, they DONT require it because they base food stamps off of what you ACTUALLY earned over the last couple months.

I am going to tell you to stop being stupid, because I would think one would be able to understand what NOT being REQUIRED to submit a yearly income means.

A help site for McDonald's employees reportedly suggests they return holiday gifts to get out of debt.

"You may want to also consider returning some of your unopened purchases that may not seem as appealing as they did," the McResource site reads, according to screengrabs that were posted on the website of "Low Pay Is Not OK," a group that advocates for higher fast food wages.*

"Selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craigslist could bring in some quick cash," the McResource presentation reportedly said.

Low Pay Is Not OK also criticizes McDonald's for saying "breaking food into smaller pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full" and suggesting that employees, most of whom are on hourly wage schedules, try to take at least two vacations per year.

Another tip from McResource supposedly tells employees to "Stop complaining. Stress hormones rise by 15% after 10 minutes of complaining."

When contacted by Business Insider, McDonald's defended the website.

"This is an attempt by an outside organization to undermine a well-intended employee assistance resource website by taking isolated portions out of context," a spokeswoman writes in an email. "The McResource website has helped countless employees by providing them with a variety of information and resources on topics ranging from health and wellness to stress and financial management."

McDonald's was also criticized earlier this year for a sample budget it provided to employees, and urging employees to apply for food stamps.

That budget suggested employees pick up a second job and turn off the heat in their homes to make ends meet.

People with better incomes keep themselves poor buying new cars, better homes. To give them reason to go into a work place they may feel is a hell hole.

The poor buy cheap crap at Wal-mart on lay-a-way. I can put up with that bastard at the fry station and the bitch at the counter. If I buy me a bigger flat screen.
