A: No. The 28th Amendment to the US Constitution prohibits McDonald's Managers from either procreating or raising a family.

Are they still only counted as 3/5 of a citizen, though? Or is that only drive-thru staff?

Ohh dear! So now we know.

I'll call my adult children up and let them know that my limited income should have been the deciding factor for both of them not to exist. Wonder how well That will go.
They received medical, sports involvement and the love of a good family... sorry if that isn't "essential" .
To "provide" is also to be there for them...sorry I didn't get your permission if I should or shouldn't have them. Little late now. Dern them for turning out so well. !

Only on those who never took nothin' from nobody, ever. It's a natural musk, not unpleasing to the owner, but it's also largely imaginary.

If you work at McD full-time say you only make between $30-45k a year. That still qualifies for a lot of govt assistance programs such as food stamp, rent assist, and you'll get a tax refund like $6k+ and additional credits if you have kids. While it's still not enough, it's survivable.

The govt assistance can vary depending on where you live. Here in the Midwest, 30-45k isn't that low, even for a family. It's tight, that's for sure and you won't be taking fancy vacations or buying high end things but you can eat decently and pay the bills if you budget correctly. We had to do that for a while since I stayed at home with the kids for several years. The only thing we qualified for was our state run children's health insurance, which we used b/c the kids needed to have that. The premiums we would have had to pay for his job's insurance were ridiculously high b/c the franchise was so small...I ended up having to buy an individual plan which had horrible coverage.

Salary aside though, being a fast food manager is way too stressful on the family...50-60+ hr work weeks are the norm...and then when you break that down, the hourly pay isn't that good. Plus...the constant phone calls...good grief...I could only imagine the amount if the place was open for 24 hrs! My husband got a base salary and then maid a percentage of commission but that was dependent upon things like keeping food costs low and labor costs low. It's harder than it looks and often he would be just above the cut off so he wouldn't get the full commission...

Yes they can, but the question is "Why would they want to try and support one?"
Out of complete necessity

Maybe some of these people don't know or have the skills to do anything else that would paid them more

High school dropout who isn't qualified for much else

I would say one job though most McDobalds manager I seen have long hours that include the weekend and are all over the place sometimes.
