I do agree it’s not brag worthy, but you make it seem like McDonald’s owes the population something. They don’t. Their restaurant jobs are unskilled or minimally-skilled and will pay that way. Unless of course they can’t continue to fill them at which time the pay will go up. I’m already seeing over $10 an hour advertised.



Pay goes up. Hours go down.

Bingo. Corps do their best to avoid cost increases. I work in NYC, and low wage jobs have skeleton staffs far more now, $15mw, than they did 2 years ago, $11mw.

I was specifically addressing a poster who leads the (large) pack of unbelievably smug, self-righteous types who Got Theirs and thinks anyone who Doesn't isn't worth the time to exterminate. But of course a self-labeled L has to get in a pompous screed about The Place of Private Business. So tedious.

"Master." I like that. Did you think of it yourself or is it from Chapter 378 of Atlas's Fountainhead?

Other than that everyone looks like a Berkeley hippie from your stack of Rand way over there on the right cliff, you have no idea what my political stance is and, other than sweeping HS like the last, haven't even made a dent in telling me what you think it is.

The Master thinks you might be out of tricks.

I haven't read anything by Rand since the Eighties; unlike on your side of the fence, the lessons sink in quickly.

But Eric Hoffer is more my kind of philosopher these days -- and he had a lot to say about blind followers.

The term "Master" is a reference to your immaturity, BTW.

It's called real life; the same rules apply everywhere, and no politician can change them.

Get used to it!!!
The same rules don't apply everywhere. Older workers are subject to one set of rules, younger workers subject to another set of rules.

Double standard = corruption.

Older people have always been able to get Mcjobs.

Age discrimination means that those are the only jobs one can get after a certain age.

Probably none, since Mickey D's won't pay relocation costs.

Don't put words in my mouth. I never said nor implied that.

What I'm saying is that we don't owe Mcdonalds's a pat on the back for doing what other Mcjob creating companies do with older worker.

It's not rocket science.... It's because Soylent is gaining marketshare at incredible rates:

I’m guessing this is only temporary until they can further increase automation.
