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.

The War on Poverty has been a failure because more people on government entitlements than ever before. What you believe has been a huge failure and nothing more than a shameful power grab.

I suggest a user name change to the grand delusion.

I think you misinterpret the war on poverty. It seems more like a war on the poor.

It's graduated based on age there. So, the huge share of people making minimum wage in the US who are under 20 years old wouldn't qualify under that system.

There are wrinkles even beyond that, too. A lot of industries are covered by other types of legislation that dictate minimum rates which are lower and you aren't eligible if you receive some types of public entitlements.

There's an australian member around here once in a while, maybe he will stop in.

I was just thinking as well, that in Germany there is no minimum wage, and they aren't the only country.

It's not one size fits all, nor is it a if-some-is-good-then-more-is-better issue either

Iirc, Germany is very "pro worker". They have a lot of laws aimed at making the employee happy.

Sure, unionization is a lot higher in Germany. But aren't there people slipping through the cracks? Why hasn't Germany, significantly more liberal than the US, felt compelled to pass a blanket law for everyone no matter what they do?

There are actually a number of welfare state countries that don't have one, if I remember correctly, or at least they didn't a number of years ago.

OH BS, that was the Democrat claim to end all poverty back then or do you want to revise history? It's clearly failed with what you dems believe because we have more on entitlements than ever. All the so called "war on poverty" ever was and is, is a power grab, nothing more. It's the dems/left that is too delusional to see their own failures.

We have to realize that all of this BS babble is coming from some communist believers, who want equality on their terms. Who voted to end slavery? The republicans. Who voted to give women the right to vote? The republicans. Who held the majority of the slaves? The Dumbocrats. Who didn't want women to vote? The Dumbocrats. Doesn't this all seem strange, with the Dumbocrat talking points of today? Well I've got news for you. They want to keep the blacks in the poor house, because it guarantees them more votes, and the Dumbocrats claim to be for women's rights, just to get their votes, even though they never supported them at any other time in our history. On that note I have to recommend a name change for J Diddy. Just Dumb would fit him so much better, and would fit his views perfectly. Just remember liberals, if your Kotex catches fire, throw it in the floor, and tampon it.

You help people be enslaved by the system, by being dependent on the government, all in the name of aquiring more power. This is how the left deceptively twists it and you bought in to it hook, line, and sinker.

You just posted your stance and now you're saying you didn't? I think you should look in the mirror on who is the silly one. You libs are going nuts seeing so much failure in front of you.

Really, what is my stance?

Please provide me the link.

From my saying that there is an enormous amount of contempt for the poor working or nut you got a huge extrapolation of facts. such as :

"You liberals, dems, progs, are disgusting creatures. You claim to be for the poor but in reality, you use the poor, just like you use minorities to accumulate government power. That's why it is so disgusting. Remember the War on Poverty in the 60's? That was meant to wipe out poverty in America but over the decades it has become a farce, to enslave the poor and minorities to dependence on government and a continued vote for the dems"
