A friend of mine posted a link to this video with the caption “If 0 dollars in tips is great then they are right.” I read the transcript and I sort of went on a tangent that I found amusing and decided to keep.
“If you’re working at a McDonald’s or a small little restaurant where you’re making tips, you’re right.”
I don’t think they were saying McDonald’s workers get tips but rather local ma and pa diners”
Now, I’m not defending them. I think they are very full of themselves to decide what people can and can’t do. If someone wants to make a career at McDonald’s then that is their right. If the only stable and gainful employment in their community are billion dollar corporations that killed the small business in their area, what choice do they have? Or had a job that supported them well I’m the 80s and 90s but they lost it after 2008 or forced out another way (age, cut backs, restructuring) and now to make ends meet they need to work a minimum wage job because they have no other skills and no one will hire them. Is it so much to say “Look, we see how you live. We are a part of this company too and we make the actual product you just sell it. All we are asking for is a little more piece of that pie.”
These drips in their hundreds of dollars suits and dresses sit in this air conditioned studio being pampered and catered to while regurgitating fear tactics over and over to the same people asking for a fair wage watching this trash 24/7.
It just sucks now that liberal media’s most clicked links seem to be stories about this kind of stuff. “Oh shit! Did you hear the mental slip up on Fox and Friends starring Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeades that airs every day at 7 am on the FoxNews Channel? (PS. It’s the President’s favorite show)” All they are doing is spreading the message that there is a group of people out there that don’t want to increase minimum wage because it would affect their bottom line and rather spend that money they could be using to help this nation to prevent them from losing a couple million and not be able to buy that 3rd summer vacation house in Italy and instead point the attention back at them that these people are just millennials and cry babies that need safe space and that they should just pull themselves by the bootstraps and do it the way they did in the 70s and 80s because look they turned out great.
Sorry for the rant.
