People dont realize the level inflation we are facing. We say 15 is too much but in reality its not.

Think about the cost of everything in relation to the pay.

Realistically, anything thing below 15 is unlivable. I say unlivable because you cant buy a car, a home, or support another person with this wage. And the America was built on higher wages. So people can afford stuff and eventually enter the middle/upper classes. Now its almost slave labor.

Think about it 7 after taxes = Just enough for a t shirt, some gas, and maybe your phone bill. Not exactly fair when the CEO's of the company are making millions a year to sit in a office and point to stuff.

America was not build on this type of raw dealings. If we want to continue to build a GOOD society we need to pay workers a living wage no matter what they do for a living. If they are working, providing a service, then decent wages should be made. Atleast 12, come on. Look at the rate of inflation guys.

You don't have to report any cash tips. It's your decision if you want to be an idiot and do that

There's high schoolers working at mcdonalds making over 11 an hour in my city. Back in high school my classmate made like 10.50, and that was some years back.

I slightly agree w/ you maybe 9 the lowest. Even w/ that increase in prices for their food people will still buy that nasty sh*t because its convenient.

Your responsibilities include finding ways to fu*k my account and changing order of charge-offs if it means additional overdraft fees can come out of it (i.e.: if we remove THIS form their account first, they'll be NSF faster, so we can hit 'em with another $35 fee). If I complain, fu*k me - just close my account and tell me to find another bank.

If I goto McDonald's, your responsibilities include giving me hot, fast, fake-ass "food", and putting up with my sh*t, even when I'm wrong.

Those things being said, you're not the factor in why they deserve a raise. Look at what they're getting vs cost of living. Then look at how much the company makes vs how much it pays to its workers. THEN watch that video or read the report on how it would only raise the price of your food by 17 cents to 68 cents, while vastly increasing the quality of life of the workforce (and therefore the quality of your food, since they'll be far less likely to rub their balls on your order).


So you're worth more than a McDonald's worker because.... you wear a tie?

fu*k everybody who I think I'm better than, because their lives being better doesn't affect my life, but threatens how much better my life might look when compared to theirs...

I feel what people are saying on BOTH sides of the argument, I look at it this way, there bringing home roughly 1,000 A MONTH after taxes if they work a 40 hour week.

Let's say you are renting out a room somewhere for $150 a week (depending on where you live price might be higher or lower)

Now after you pay your rent for the month ($600) your left with $400

Now let's say you don't have a car and you catch the bus or train to work. (Depending on where you live at, this number can be higher or lower, but I will use a low number) $150 a month for travel to and from work.

So, so far we have $600 a month just to rent a room, and $150 for travel, now we're left with $250 for THE MONTH

Ok now let's say you want some groceries, once again I'm throwing out a low number $40 a week for groceries so that would be $160 for the month

Were down to $90 for the month

Ok, now let's say I'm currently looking for a new job or a 2nd job to improve my living standards. I get a metro phone with the most basic plan they have so I can have a way for people to call me for a interview. Lets say I pay $35 a month

Were at $55 fellas,

This would be for a SINGLE person, living in the WORST possible area at those prices.

I left the internet off, because you can go to the public library and use their computers. I also left the cable off, because that's a luxury.

I'm not blaming the CEO'S for this nor am I blaming the people that want more for this either, but how does the government come up with this number for MIN WAGE what's the equation for how they come up with this number.

The numbers don't add up, $7.25 but the gas is close to or at $4 a gallon in some places. That's more than HALF your pay an hour. Also when the gas goes up, so does your food and travel cost.

I understand that these were jobs for kids in high school back in the day, but as you can see more and more adults are working these jobs as the times are changing.

Let's say you want to go back to school and get a degree, and you get fin-aid, where is the money coming from for books, school supplies etc. Remember ALL you have is $55 for the month.

Lord forbid, you have a girlfriend, or want to have any type of entertainment.

I don't see any reason why they can't pay their employees a comparable wage. They're doing the same jobs.

Ok so what are you going to do ? The CEOs owe them nothing in a capitalist society, if you don't like the wage quit. I don't mean to be harsh but thats how things are , they can protest all they want for better wages but their lack of skills grants them no leverage so they can easily be replaced. 10 -11 would be reasonable but the top dogs don't want to to take a pay cut and they shouldn't have to based on the ideals this country was built on. I might sound condescending but thats just how things work in our self interest-based and individualized society.
this. its like the girl who's BD beats on her every day and she cries and complains and asks him to change, when she has the power to leave and forge a new lifestyle for herself.

and if McD's employees are making $15/hr, please believe a McChicken will cost more than $1.17

Mcdonalds employees all over the country do not make 7.25. People keep spreading this false information. Are we limiting this argument to just new york mcdonalds employees? Because even then I'm sure not all of them are making that.

FAFSA will likely pay for all of it and leave enough money for books and supplies.

I do agree though, life on that kind of wage hurts. Minimum wage out here in Colorado is just under $8. Unless you're living in the sh*tty cities like Pueblo or Greeley, life would be a struggle to live in the larger cities like Denver or Colorado Springs.

#1 Your right a lot of employees do pay over the min wage, my problem is how did they agree on $7.25hr the min. What's this based on, as I stated above (WHERE ARE YOU LIVING ) on this wage.

#2 In n Out burger is ONLY on the west coast and EVERYONE can't work at BK. But i feel ya, I'm just playing devil's advocate here.

#1 FSFA will not pay for ALL your expenses. If that's the case the student loan debt will not be larger than the credit card debt in this country (yes you can take out loans but they want you to contribute something )

#2 As far as the sh*tty cities like Pueblo or Greeley, how much would rent be there
