    I'm sorry but that mcdonalds skit was funny as hell lol. I worked at McDonald's when i was 15 years old but wouldn't ever consider working there as an adult unless it was in management. I don't agree with there pay practices but what do you expect for unskilled labor, I guess the moral of the story is don't waste your life, write a book, make a documentary, write a catchy tune, or get skilled in a trade otherwise youll end up in section 8 for the rest of your life and have no one to blame but yourself, peace love and chicken grease homes :)

    the corporations and the banksters with their Public relations firm=main stream media keep you from never ever ever ever ever figuring out how bad their fucking you.-----Until you wake up.----1st clue= The "fed"----it aint federal,--- its owned by the rockefellers and their global bankster gangsters. This institution was hijacked in 1913 -this is how it works----they bribed politicians to let them print the money(called currency cause it aint backed by 0) then they sell the currency back to the government(called bonds) at usury interest-which is illegal----that we didnt need in the first place because the constitution specifically states that congress shall control the printing of money so there's no interest for the people to pay which means if you work hard you can prosper without someone(gov.) stealing it thru the IRS.So they counterfiet-then extort the interest thru force.WAR makes them insanely rich-This is why our country is so fucked up and theres always War---Oh.and the ppl at the top of this NWO pyramid are parasitic,narcsisistic psychopaths who are void of empathy which means their not human--their predators superficial,artificial humans.For more info watch Bill Still's 'The MoneyMasters"

    Hold up...When Governing a state or sitting on Senate, was brought on in history, it was labeled a transitional job. so why are they making a lot of money. shouldn't the transitional work be paid minimum wage?

    Don't get me wrong, People should have a fair chance at a decent wage, but I've known a lot of people who work at a minimum wage paying job, and can get by if they're responsible. Yeah, things are tight, but going out and buying a PS4 or Xbox1 isn't helping. I'm not saying this is how it is everywhere, but I think a lot of people hurt themselves, then cry about not having enough.

    • thewess26
      thewess26 5 years ago +1

      The job doesn't matter... If a person is working full time providing a service to Americans and paying taxes. that makes them just as important to our society as everyone else. and to complain that someone working 100 hours a paycheck is on welfare. like that is their fault?? WTF?? why are they not worthy of a living wage? and I seem to remember being a Governor or Senator was a transitional job 80 years ago. now they sit in lifetime terms and make millions!

    • Reneiru
      Reneiru 5 years ago

      More often than not they don't have a choice. After the recession so many people lost jobs and now they now have to resort to the ones at the bottom of the barrel to try and get some kind of paycheck. No matter how abysmal it is. There are people with college degrees, people that were fired from their previous jobs, and people with no other options because they were born into poverty and have no opportunity for a higher education because they just don't have the finances for it.

  • jckgrim51
    jckgrim51 5 years ago +1

    I say purge the McDonald's work force, and re-hire the group of employees the job is recommended/intended for. As for the people who are not in the group and were just fired, tough shit. Better learn to fish and make fire b.c if you really think your fall back job was McD then your fucked in life. How could you possibly think being a burger flipper, even with a slightly higher income, will raise your standard of living? People can argue with me statistics or what ever the fuck excuse is for these people's hardship, I don't give a fuck! Kids in Africa or where ever working under age doing labor I will never dream of going through, yet I am supposed to care about some fucktard working at a burger joint, b.c he is having a "tough" time? Fuck that guy!

    If you know the job pays minimum wage and you still accept the position, who's fault is that? It's not the company's fault, you came to them and asked for a job. Nobody told you go work there. So who's fault is it? Oh, that's right, its your own fault. You applied for the job. You know knew what the pay was. You accepted the position. And now you complain about it? Such hypocrisy of the American worker.

    • IJizzLightningBolts

      +rebelliousbynature99 He's talking about the people who set what exactly constitutes "minimum wage", i.e. employers and lawmakers, being evil, bloodsucking scumbags who'll throw employees under the bus if it helps their bottom line. He also, justifiably, called you an idiot.

      What happens when the greedy top tier are the ones who decide what the consequences are? maybe no min. wage so they can pay someone 100 dollars a month for a full time job? Who deems these jobs unimportant to society at least not important enough to pay for rent and food, just one or the other. If you are not rich and you are defending the people who solely base every decision on profits rather than people, than you are an idiot like they are calling you.

      Hey, you're the idiot looking for intellectual conversation in the youtube comments section, of all places. Also, the only reason I trolled you was because you deserved it.

      +IJizzLightningBolts Do you understand how ridiculous your somments are? Do you understand how ignorant your comments make you look? At every step you've demonstrated an inability to hold an intelligent conversation and an inability to comprehend what's being said. You've failed miserably at every attempt to insult or annoy me, as I found childish taunts to be amusing juvenile behavior. however, this does bore me as I find it to be a waste of my time to continue communicating with an individual with the maturity level of an 8 year old with a potty mouth.
      I'm pretty sure you're going to respond with some vulgar retort because you feel the need to have the last word. Well, I'm giving it to you. I'm not planning on responding to it, but feel free to continue in your vain adoloscent goading. I enjoy the laugh.

At least the ones that were nice. Now as for these things they suggest you do to help get you out of debt that's ridiculous. I mean seriously why should I have to sell things I either already had or, were given to me. I just don't understand it. But, that's how it goes I guess.

    I work in mc donald's and it is a huge pain in the ass, first the wages are bullshit minimum wage for all crew members. And they want you to be doing everything possible as if they were paying 9 or 10 bucks an hour. Oh and don't even get me started with the managers, it appears to be that you have to be childish in order to be a manager. But a crew member are forbidden to make any sort of rude comments towards them or other crew members. And the customers for God sake, the stupidest ones are the ones that are always rude. We the crew make minimum wage or a little bit more than that while management gets 10 bucks and that's only if they have experience already. I can't even imagine how much the actual store manager makes yes they have more responsibilities and what not. But not all of those managers deserve to make that much, without the crew they are nothing.

  • James Clark

    It's not McDonald's that does this. They are run by a board of directors that have an obligation to make a profit in every one of their ventures. If they don't make a profit they get fired and replaced. Say they started paying their employes a higher wage. This will dramatically effect their profit and can drop stock prices. If that happens the investor market can be damaged. It is very much the investors that tell the directors what needs to be done. If the investors don't want profit to be effected by a pay raise then guess what? It is not so much the company that fucks people as it is normal people like you and me. These company's are in it for money just like every other company. They don't give a shit about you... just your money. If you have any illusions otherwise you are a fool. Oh and FYI, You would do the same thing if you owned a company and you saw that a living wage fucked your profits.

    i'm an engineer (surveyor) in romania and i work for 800$/ month (10hours/day) and i'm not complaining like you spoiled americans. if you didn't like going to school then you should be extremely happy working for 7 dollars/hour.

    • Shripad K
      Shripad K 5 years ago +1

      $800 in Romania is not same as $800 in us though. I am not from US, and $800 a month is salary of a good software engineer with 5-10 years experience at times here in India. And that is upper middle class income and you can live relatively comfortable life with that kind of money for family of 4.
      $15 is enough for me to buy groceries for entire week for my home.
      We really shouldn't be comparing pay in different countries. Surviving on $800 in US in anywhere in big - mid size cities is very difficult. Sure, if you live in remote part of Idaho, you can. But not in most other places.

    Even if Wal-Mart and McDonald's begin offering higher minimum wages to their employees. The government will find yet another way to take a significant percentage from our paychecks. Not only that, I am beginning to see that most of these comments are coming from Left/liberal side of things. How it is completely the fault of corporations, how millionaires are at fault in preventing unions and billionaires are at fault in getting away with anything. This is coming from the Libertarian side, Government is the problem, Government is the entire reason why we are in 17 trillion dlllars in debt and it is the reason why a selective amount of corporations are currently in power. We have to elected liberty-minded candidates who are not afraid to say NO to powerful lobbyists.

    • Will Flint
      Will Flint 5 years ago +3

      LOL WOW, Bo, your ignorance is showing: go home, your drunk. With that being said, Luna helps to paint a better picture of the situation. Being LIBERAL or CONSERVATIVE has nothing to do with it. Whether you have a liberal or conservative in officer or local municipal governance, who do you think funds their campaigns? Next to your very small tax paying dollars, the rest of said money comes from corporations who want to make capitalization much easier and efficient for them, thus maximizing their returns while spending the least amount of money doing so. Mon Santo Foods is a good example with the proposition that was trying to be passed in California not to long ago (I believe the proposition got shut down by Mon Santo and the Government).
      In any case, the government lobbies for those who fund their campaigns: collective tax payer money often gets poured into various different resources, but more often then not it is allocated to help advance the agenda of a actor or rather group of actors. Seriously, liberalism has nothing to do with it: Liberalism and Conservatism are forms of politics, methods of how one body executes a certain fiscal strategy or even urban development regime, they are essentially two sides of the same coin. It really really bugs me when people go around spouting political nonsense without using common rhetoric and logic to figure out the greater picture: there will be times where governing a large economic and social organism will require both liberal and conservative political notions, never one of the other.
      With that being said, we need to rally for a lower standard of living, and lower inflation rates. The global economic engine drives prices up every year due to economic scarcity, but this is a man-made economic crisis that has been imposed on us through capitalism itself. If we want to see a more equal living wage from employers we will first need to see a lower cost of living and a lower inflation rate: the answer is not raising the minimum wage, but rather making the economic market more affordable. Seriously, if you want to say anything on politics, at least go and inform yourself first, you will thank yourself in the long run.

      (takes a deep breath before his head explodes) Im sorry who exactly do you think the lobbyists work for? Are you that brain dead that you can't even connect two dots? The Corporations ARE the Root of the Problem the elected individuals are a symptom. Greed. If we reward Greed we can not be shocked or appauled that elected officials take bribes and money from the lobbyists that work for the Mega Corps. To speak to your absurd assertion that Government is the reason we are in 17 trillion (and the word is dollars) in about looking at how much America spends every year on our Millitary Budget. $682 B B B Billion dollars that is more than the next 10 countries COMBINED! (Statistics from the Peter G. Peterson Foundation: April 12, 2013) Not to mention they are ALL allies! And who can we blame for this rampant shopping spree with the American taxpayers money? The Idiot missinformed and brain dead voters who cast their votes for Republicans and "Libertarians" Perhaps if we cut our military spending down to only $341 Billion and then take that other $341 Billion and put it into...oh I don't know education, perhaps we might have a voting populous that could acctually process, rationalize, and assimilate know using their BRAIN and not their "gut" to tell them who the better candidates are? You think that might work Einstein?

  • Careless' VOD Reviews
    Careless' VOD Reviews 5 years ago

    I see so often that someone who is working a bad job, I understand why you do (family, debt and so on), That stop looking for a job once they get it. I'm still looking for a better job right now, and have been with my current company for almost a year. I was with the company before that for a year, and the company before that for 2 years. My pay has gradually increased as I left bad, unhealthy jobs for slight improvements. Don't stop looking for work because you're working.
    Also consider, there is someone willing to do the job you are doing now, and you are doing them a disservice by not utilizing your potential. Keep climbing, I've doubled my pay in these 4 years, and will continue to look for work even if I can make 100k+ a year. My father makes 120k+ a year at a company he has been with for 8 years, and very seriously considered moving to a different company for higher pay. He started as a door to door meat salesman. He is very skilled and SO ARE YOU. So don't be satisfied with your current pay rate. Look for work no matter how good your job is.

It was a starter job. That is what jobs like these and others are suppose to be.
    I am also tired of people blaming companies for their misfortunes. If you don't like were you are and want more, come up with a solution and do something about it. When did this become a country of "finger pointers" and hating people that have more then you vice a country of people that used those people to inspire themselves to work harder to get more?

    I work at Wal-Mart and it pisses me off to hear people bitching about how much they make work at a fast food joint or a retail store. The people who signed the job offer knew what the wages are and they should have know they would have to work holidays and weekends. It's stupid to think you should be paid more to flip burgers or to put shit on shelves. the job isn't that hard; you are doing what the pay is worth. if you don't like it go find a better job or fucking go back to school to get a better job. and if you have some kind of excuse like I cant go back to school well that's a result of the choices you made now isn't it? Wal-Mart or McDonalds shouldn't have to pay lazy assholes you bitch about their wages while doing shitty work just because those lazy assholes didn't want to stay in school or some shit like that.

      That's a nice way to put it into perspective. It's just that I've worked in fast food and it doesn't feel like you should be able to make a living off of it at all. I wouldn't argue with minimum being raised, but it's just such a mindless job. Why should you be paid more than is earned? There are plenty of teenagers to work at fast food restaurants it seems.

      And yet these are still jobs in our society. Someone has to work them, and that someone will probably be a full time employee.

    Honestly, the majority of these comments make me so angry. Does everyone have to agree that McD's workers should get a wage raise? No, of course not. But does being in a better situation at the current moment all of a sudden give you insight into these these workers' lives and give you the authority to pass judgement on them? Not everyone speaks english. Not everyone has money to go to college. Not everyone has choices. Not everyone has lived a life that has taught them where they should look for opportunities. To say that these workers deserve their situations and are stupid for not looking elsewhere for jobs -- does it feel good to look down on other people?

You may not have to pay that back but you most likely had to something for it not just because you ask for it you will get it.

    As a former employee of McDonald's it wasn't hard to get raises.. and managers made pretty good money... just shift manager pay starting was 15 an hour.. it wasn't a corporate mcdys though. . The owner would give loans during the holidays and actually cared. . But the big ceos now just don't care

    I worked at McDonalds for three and a half hours... Then they realized I was too young after reading my date of birth off a piece of paper in an interview and a training session. So after I watched all their training videos and was ready to leave, I was paid in coupons to their restaurant that I will never use because I refuse to put that food in my body. Another good reason to not work for McDonalds!

    If they're using these kinds of figures no wonder its fubar:
    UK National Minimum wage:
    Year 21 and over 18 to 20 Under 18 Apprentice(under 19)
    2013 (current rate) £6.31 £5.03 £3.72 £2.68
    US equivalent (today)$10.23 $8.18 $6.03 $4.35
    Average cost of living UK = £500 per month (approx) = $810
    Average cost of living US = $460 per month (approx) = £285
    Every country is getting underpaid or over taxed, McDonalds needs to increase their wage but the amount people are asking for is ridiculous, its classed as an unskilled job which is why the wage is low. I support them needing a higher wage but to more than double it?

    Employment with McDonalds is not a CAREER. Its a job. There is no way that the majority of employees in these places are worth more than minimum wage.

    If you work at McD's its because you are attending college & only need the money for gas, books etc. If you work at McD's because you have dropped out of high school or w.e other lazy reason well that's your fault & you deserve to get paid minimum.

    • rebelliousbynature99

      Comprehension doesn't seem to be a strong suit with you. I said the person doesn't deserve to get paid more. If the employeer chooses to pay you more, that's on the employeer and it is the employeer's right to make that decision. However, that doesn't mean the person deserves the raise.

    • thewess26

      So you shouldn't get raises? Because it's more than you agreed upon when hired? You don't make sense.

    • rebelliousbynature99
      rebelliousbynature99 5 years ago

      People deserve to get paid what they agreed to work for. When someone agrees to work for minimum wage, they get paid minimum wage. When they agree to work for more, they get paid more. No one deserves to be paid more than what was initially agreed to when the person was originally hired.

    • thewess26
      thewess26 5 years ago

      NOBODY deserves to work their butt off generating millions of dollars for someone only to be handed less than what is needed to eat and have a roof! what is so hard to see about that! what about small towns with no jobs available except for transitional jobs? what then? none of those people should be allowed to live with the basic necessities that others get. sheesh... no wonder people would rather choose welfare. if their full time job pays $9.15 per hour and welfare gives them $9.00 why wouldn't they? don't the companies that profit the most from the cities they live in. realize that with a little more balance to the money earnings they could solve a lot of problems. why isn't this the question? why is there someone standing on a mountain of money calling their employees greedy because they can't afford to get off of welfare, even with a full time job? Burger flipping or not. providing a service to Americans, and paying taxes on wages makes them just as important as anyone else. why do they not deserve to have what is needed to survive?

      Supposed to be treated equally? No, were not, that'd be foolish. Equality occurs when there is parity between to parties, when they are equals. When talking about human rights, yes, there is parity and everyone should be treated equally. However, when discussing positionary parity, which this video falls under, that doesn't exist, as someone will always be one step higher. A parent is over a child. A teacher is over a student. A boss is over a worker. A company is over its employees. there is no parity therfore there can be no equality.

  • Not Fit For Television

    All i have to say about this is, Entry-Level jobs exist as entry level. If McDonalds workers were given raises, then what about everyone who has jobs within that $7 margin that have higher requirements for hire? they would want more pay as well. with that means higher cost for all these companies, resulting in higher prices and probably less business. with that comes cutbacks, companies close down some of their shops and lay-off workers to save a little more. then we end up in an economic backlash leaving everyone screwed. the world is tough, and because you couldnt find work elsewhere education or not you choose fast-food. it is not glamorous, and it does not pay well. if you have an education this should be a stepping stone to either move up the mcdonalds ladder, or until better work is available. if your a high school drop-out or lack ambition, this is what happens. its not nice to say, but thats how it works. you cannot go into a starter job demanding high pay and get expected to get it, especially when half the high schoolers are willing to take that job for such a low wage.

  • Giovanna Greeff

    I'm shocked at the amount of people that say not to blame the employer and instead get a better job. When the economy took a nosedive there were tons of men and women with degrees and had been with the company for 20+ years that were laid off. They searched for a job and ended up getting stuck in retail and fast food, or call centers. They live off food stamps, and still managed to put aside their pride for their family and come to work at places that were considered jobs for teenagers. NO JOB is made specifically for teenagers anymore. You have to work wherever you can sometimes because that's what life has handed you. I've worked multiple jobs at a time myself while living with my parents and trying to go to school and still coming out with hardly any money to do anything I enjoyed. I had to take semesters off because I refused to get a student loan due to such high interest rates, and wasn't able to get scholarships. I ended up paying out of pocket for every semester, and got my associates, but don't have my bachelors just yet. Now I'm married, my husband thankfully makes enough that we can pay to go to school, but now I'm pregnant expecting our first child and am having to take a semester or two off while I get the hang of motherhood. I want to get back out into the working world and make some money to help our income a little, unfortunately the cost of putting my child in daycare would be so much that working wouldn't give us money, it would just cost us more to have someone watch her then it would to have me stay at home and find a way to run a business from home. Couples that want to expand their families need to be a dual earning household these days just to keep up with the inflation that is going on and the bills. If you haven't worked in food or retail then consider yourself lucky, but don't bash hard working people that are willing to take on those jobs. They aren't easy. When I worked at one establishment they would schedule you for 39.5 hours so that they didn't have to offer you benefits. One place I worked would give you a promotion but base your raise off of your evaluation, which was so strict that if you made even one mistake, no matter how small you didn't get a raise. On top of that there are people in the world that would come in with a mindset of the workers being uneducated and would end up throwing hissy fits in order to get things that were against our policy. One retail location I worked I had parents that would drop their kids off to play in the toys so they could try on clothes and would come up to me after leaving the fitting room and yell at me because their child was missing....watching their child was definitely not my responsibility. I had one person yell at me over the counter once for putting sour cream on their taco when they said no sour cream, but what he doesn't realize was I'd been making tacos for quite some time that day already, and it's so mind numbing that you go on auto pilot sometimes, but you apologize and fix it. On top of that it was my second week working there. I was just trying to remember what went on what, and they refused to pay for it even though I made them a new taco completely, and apologized. People need to hold their tongue and realize that yelling at the people making your food or cleaning up after you in retail locations are human beings. They have kids, they have school, they have bills, and they a lot of times have degrees. We are not stupid, and we deserve respect even if you feel like we're idiots. Try working those jobs and see how well you do. I don't think that McDonalds needs to pay their workers $15 an hour, but a raise to 9 or 10 is definitely something that needs to happen.

    I have a family member that works for a big box retailer (no names, but its a big red box) and to "help" their employees get more hours to, they are now giving full time employees 40 hours one week and 0 hours the next instead of cutting everyone's hours down to 18-20. Now they can't complain that they are not getting 40 hrs as full timers.

The fact that you are basicly arguing that we should raise the minimum wage to whatever the hell you think it should be and there will be no economic repercussions makes you ignorant my friend.
