Do you work in the food service industry or own a franchise?
I knew a guy that owned a franchise. It's no walk in the park.
You always owe to the "mother ship" and you have to buy what they tell you even if you can get it cheaper elsewhere. When all was said and done he was making what a middle manager at a big company was making without all the stress. He eventually got out of it. That's just the one person I know.

A rocket scientist on the other hand, as a higher skill set and is harder to find, thus when a company needs this skill, the wages are higher because there is less available people with this skill.

Whether a person qualifies for SNAP or not is not a concern of a business, it is the government that sets that standard.
That is not the only factor in pay.

From what I've googled McDonalds does not require franchise owners to become corporations.
The leasee's require them to be corporations in order to limit liability to the property owners. One would be a complete fool to operate businesses like this as a sole proprietorship

p.s. S Corp, are corporations. and LLC's are indeed forms of corporations as well.. So your list two actually validate what I said as correct.

So when you said your employees were part timers, you lied?

Used to own a bar and a hotel, but what the hells that got to do with you only hiring part time employees? My employee/employer relationship has nothing to do with yours..

Mc Donalds Corp is very clear that franchisers' employee compensation and employment practices are independent of Mc Donalds Corp.

I would gladly pay 68 cents more so people get a better salary and don't need SNAP to live.
I would gladly pay 68 cents but the problem is that your article is complete BS and really won't do jack... anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't know how businesses work and are idiots..

I couldn't rep you again yet, but I think you're exactly correct in this statement. If you don't like what you're paid, leave and go somewhere else that pays you more! Nobody is forcing anybody to work there. Of course these crybabies could make themselves worth more, but that actually takes ambition and work. Far easier to just whine.

What is wrong with this picture ?
school is 7 hours a day, 5 days a week,for the 8 1/2 months a year.

you are comparing them to someone who is working 8 to 10 hours a day for 6 days a week all year around.

School is a day based contract ..usually 187 days.

Teaching at the entry level comes out to about $18/hour.
That's what I was trying to compare. That's only a $3/hour difference.
