Old news but I cannot people are still complaining about this...
One side says McDonald's made over a billion dollars in profit alone last year and could easily afford the raise to substantially raise the quality of living for its employees
The other side says McDonald's is an entry level job not designed for a long term career but to be a job at the bottom of the ladder you climb to build success.
I personally think it is STUPID to demand to raise the minimum wage to try and force McDonald's to increase wages. Much smaller jobs will get hit in the crossfire completely unable to afford such a high minimum wage. I don't care how much money McDonald's made in profit, wages are a direct reflection of the work being performed. Flipping burgers and dropping fries does nog require $15 an hour workers, that is the truth of it. I hope everyone who is on strike is replaced by a willing and hard worker for the wages that reflect the work done.
I'm an LPN and an office administrator, I know exactly what my experience and education is worth. They should know what theirs is worth.
