“I Can’t Pay My Bills” – McDonald’s Employees Furious As Company Renegs On Wage Hikes

“I Can’t Pay My Bills” – McDonald’s Employees Furious As Company Renegs On Wage Hikes:

When the initiative was first announced, McDonald’s decision to raise its employees’ wages to $1 above minimum wage (albeit only at corporate-owned stores, a minority of the company’s total count) was hailed as a radical example of corporate accountability – a direct repudiation of the far-left notion that “quarterly capitalism” and employers accepting responsibility for their employees were mutually exclusive.

As any steely eyed realist might’ve expected, McDonald’s widely lauded “wage hike” was little more than a publicity stunt. In the three years since McDonald’s announced the wage hike in 2015, the firm has essentially frozen employee wages, often leaving them just a few cents above minimum wage, as Bloomberg has discovered.

The greasy character who finally put me off McDonald’s

The greasy character who finally put me off McDonald’s:

NO matter how much we buy into the dream of obtaining Elle Macpherson’s body by mainlining green juice, there’s something about McDonald’s that we just can’t resist.

This is food with virtually no nutritional value, packed with E numbers and ingredients you have to try not to think about — but something keeps drawing us back to its comfortingly babyish, sweet and salty embrace.

But finally, I’ve had the wake-up call I needed to put me off Macca’s for good.
