Fast Food Workers

Why do people looking for jobs think they are above fast food positions?

I know folks who have been unemployed for 2 - 3 years and complain they can't find a even a minimum wage job. Seriously? Fast food jobs are available all of the time.

Also, why do people poke fun at fast food workers who are trying to turn their life around? At least they are working an honest days work and not on welfare. People confuse me.

Very simple answer LAZY. About a week ago a young lady had posted on a local buy sel an trade site she didn't have enough formula to get thru till food stamps. A gentleman on there offered her boyfriend wrk for a day to make some money for formula an little extra. The first response should of been thank you where an what time NO it was he wants to know what he has to do. If my kids were hungry I would come clean yer toilet for a cheap pk of hot dogs an box of macn cheese

Because everyone wants someone else to dump all over, and service workers occupy the low spot on the totem pole.

Not saying I agree with this line of thought.

Have you ever considered the costs of paying a baby sitter, driving to a part time fast foods job, maybe get 4 hours a day at minimum wages without few to any benifits?
When compared to stay home get Tenn. Care, food stamps, welfare and draw unemployment?

Which would you do if working a part time job cost you more than stating at home and raising your children?

What about the lazy ass fathers or the whore hoping dead beats, who father those children?
Stop blaming only the mother's or children, when it takes two to tango!
Then takes some state worker to approve welfare, foodstamps, unemployment and TennCare!

Why not blame those men who can't keep their pecker out from those open legs, and be required to support those children of their making?

If you could get a job lets say you were a woman with 3 kids, no husband how do you think even 3 part time jobs, and 1 full time job as a mother without help could keep up rent, food, transportation, clothing, medical insurance, home supplies, and not be charged with child neglect?

Who cares if these mothers and children get welfare, food stamps, Tenn. Care, etc?

Is Obama trip to Africa costing the America Tax payers around $100 million dollars, is he pledging to giving Africa $7 Billion in US aid and 9 billion in private aid while there? Is his admistration going to allow destroyed $7 Billion of equipment in Afghanistan, cost to much to ship it back, hell are these public officials wasting more than any on welfare and you all want to complain about welfare mothers and children in this county are getting help?
Is George Bush also over in Africa even over there with Obama helping build a medical clinic, how much do you think those X Presidents cost after they go out of public office?

Give those welfare mother's and children more, help the poor and needy in America!

. I agree help the poor in this country first but when you see some of these young girls who have a baby with someone who is just useless and refuses to help. But then before that one is out of diapers they have another one with the same or diff.useless man and another where do we draw the line. If you arrest the deadbeat and lock him up for awhile now were feeding an housing him. the system is broke and nobody seems to know how to fix it

I agree... I also agree with the fathers do need to take care of their children but I know too many women who will take the money givein to them by their childrens fathers for the kids and they go buy clothes get their hair done and be in the clubs all weekend .. and come Monday they want to know what free items they can get for their poor poor pitiful kids.. the system is created on a 5 year plan which provides everything the kids will need in order for the mothers to get a free education to be able to support these kids but what do they do sit on their ass everyday and complain free birth control is also provided for these women which obviously they do not use. the people on here defending these women are either the women who are being referenced or the people who are claiming these kids for these women on their income tax and giving the mothers money and they get a cut.. a call to IRS would be interesting these women have no jobs multiple kids and come the first of the year they are looking for somebody to claim there kids so they can get some money and when you get audited who will be paying back the government ?? the dumbass who claimed the kid because the dead mother has already spent it on clothes cell phones cigarettes and at the soul train. the pitiful thing about this is these women think people look down on them because they are jealous or as they say hateing .. what is there to be jealous of ??? if all you want is a nasty section 8 home no dignity or a 401 k by all means keep spitting these kids out and quit complaining

Can we also blame the women for DATING these scumbags? Most of the time its obvious this is going to happen to anyone but the young lady involved. Lessee.... hes got 4 kids, with three different mothers? Sure i can buy that once the woman was crazy and popped the rubber or something.... but after that, its totally the guys fault. So why date a moron like that? "Oh he left my friend to be with me.." and he'll leave you for your sister. "he's between jobs and needs my help..." for over a year, and you buy his smokes and a 12pack of beer a day... why should he change?
