Fast Food

Fast food workers deserve fair wages

Big companies don't care about the workers as long as they are making a profit. AND it's not just the fast food business. I work with a billion dollar green company competing with companies making some of the most toxic products we use in our homes and put on our bodies. Those companies don't care about the cheap ingredients they use as long as you the consumer buys the junk and use it. In turn, you are making your family and pets sick. Years ago, 1 in 18,000 Americans had cancer; today, it's more like 1 in 3. What do you think the big companies care about? - Profit! As long as they make money, that' all that counts. CEO compensation is up 875% since 1978 versus 5.4% for the average worker. That is NOT okay. Even if they do increase the minimum wage, it's not going to go from where it is now to $15 per hour; too big of an increase. Would be nice, but I say don't count on it. You gotta find another industry. When you need help, look for those who can help you. It's not going to be your fast food place where I understand one company has shown their employees if they want to live a better life, it's simple - get a part-time job, again making minimum wage, but now instead of working 8-hours you are working 12-hours a day making basically nothing. You get to spend even less time with your family or if you are single less time for yourself.  (Sep 6, 2013 | post #1)

Fast Food

Did You Know!

There is NO reason why anyone cannot make more than minimum wage. If you are motivated, you can find companies who are ready to help you. It may not be the conventional J.O.B. which I call ‘Just Over Broke’. At the same time you don't want to get involved with a MLM (Multilevel Marketing) company where you work really hard only to have your hard earned income go to the people at the top. Take time to search and when you find a company you think is a good fit, there is no harm in researching the company through the Better Business Bureau, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Federal Trade Commission (FTC), State Attorney's Office. Those are the organizations helping consumers protect themselves. I can tell you Internet search is NOT the best or proper research. Every time I see the commercial with the ‘French Model’ and the young lady says, “If it's on the Internet, it must be true”, I have to laugh, because she thinks like a lot of people. The telephone book and your telephone are best. When I took early retirement because of 911, I still needed income to make up my take home pay. I was approached by several MLM companies and because I had taken that route years before with no success and loss of money, I didn't dare look, even when told, “You can get in on the ground floor”. That usually means the company will get a good start, but usually within 5-years they are dead. My expertise life training was medical technologist, doing lab work, helping doctors, but moving to a southern state, the pay was unacceptable, so I trained in the airline industry. There I helped people with travel arrangements. When retirement was offered, I needed something new. I wanted to get back into medical somehow, but not in the sense of working nights and weekends. We are all trainable, but to do something different, different means you also have to be coachable. My marketing and advertising department trained me to do something I had no idea I could do. My team helped and coached me, so don't think because you are not trained in a different industry, you can only do what you have done since your working days began. Students are graduating college and many can't find jobs. So the traditional job may not be what is right for you now. Go out, find it; it's there for you. I found my company, because they are always looking to help others. So you too can find something great.  (Sep 6, 2013 | post #1)
