Like the Grateful Dead sang; "What a long strange trip it's been," but I wouldn't want it any other way.
I look forward to the journey continuing, and that together we will be able to talk with more interesting people and learn a little along the way.
See you in the morning!
Workers at McDonald's Restaurants in seven US cities have gone on strike in an effort to get the fast food chain to double their wages from $7.45 an hour to $15.00. A researcher of the University of Kansas figured out that the wage increase would add sixty-eight cents to the cost of a Big Mac, and seventeen cents to the price of an item on the dollar menu. Would you support the increase? Could you afford the increase? Could McDonalds afford the increase? Understand that these are entry level positions, and if you want to advance you should consider moving into management. What is the incentive to do better if McDonald's caves on the workers demands. I am certain McDonald's can pay better, but will consumers drive to the nearest competition if there is a slight increase in the price of a burger and fries. As many people have, I worked in fast food after high school, but it was only short term. People argue that jobs are hard to come by, but why would you even try to find them if you can have your wages doubled without having to increase the skills needed to do those jobs. Many Americans went on to great things after humble beginings at low wages in fast food. If the job doesn't pay what you think your worth it's time to move on.
