This topic really has my blood boiling! Today in 60 cities Fast Food Workers at places such as McDonald’s, Burger King and Taco Bell, to name a few, took to the picket lines, What are they fighting for? Better wages. Great! What is the wage they are seeking? $15 an hour! $15 an hour!? You have to be kidding me.
Is there anything wrong with working at a place like McDonald’s? Absolutely not as your man KnowItAll actually worked at McDonald’s, granted I was 15 at the time. However, $15 an hour for the skill of being able to put French fries, a burger, some condiments and a soda into a paper bag and saying “Thank you, please come again” does not warrant a wage of $15 an hour! Sorry but if you are trying to support a family on minimum wage you should be hit in the back of the head with a shovel and put out of your misery.
If your working skills only allow you to work at a fast food join you should not be procreating. Buy a damn condom instead of bringing 7 lives into the world that you can’t support let alone provide a better future for. For all that is wrong with the U.S.A., as far as I’m concerned, this is the greatest country in the world and will always be the land of opportunity. The problem is that most who are born and raised here feel entitled. They want success to be handed to them and hate on those who are successful rather than take a long hard look in the mirror and ask themselves what they can do to change themselves in order to become a success themselves. Few want to work hard, put in the effort to be successful, fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. Many rather bitch and moan about their circumstances than to do anything about their situations.
So here we are today with fast food workers crying about their wages and screaming for $15 an hour. Hell no, there is no way in hell that a dude at Burger King deserves to be paid on par with a Dental Assistant. If fast food workers want $15 an hour, get out of the industry, get yourself together and get a better job.
Stupidity at it’s finest ladies and gentleman!
