Recently junk-food workers went on strike to try to get $15.00 per hour. Really?
The fact is that financial incentives work. At $8/hour there should be a strong financial incentive to use your McJob as a stepping stone to a better job. At $15/hour why bother trying to step into the role of high stress shift manager. Just hang onto that mind numbing fry guy job!
These restaurants already have a solution in the works for highly paid burger flippers – robotics. More and more restaurants will be adding more and more high tech machines that can eliminate these positions.
Nobody forces these workers to keep these jobs. Don’t like how much you are being paid? Try bettering yourself and going out and applying for higher paid positions.
