Not worth it unless you commute to Fort Collins or Metro Denver. Greeley is a college town and a sh*t hole. Mostly a sh*t hole, but the college bi*ches there are easy.

If you're talking about Denver itself, it's nearly an hour away. It really depends what you consider "Denver" since a lot of the time, they consider the surrounding cities as part of the "Greater Denver Area". Kind of like what they do with Houston and the surrounding cities.

My sister went to school for HR @ Rutgers and she's just under a 6 figure debt (it's like over 80,000 she owes, at least). I goto a community college for music industry communications, and I'm probably approaching 10k in debt...

15 aint gonna happen. Forget about it. 10 is reasonable. I worked fast food in high school and its some of the hardest work ive done. Hell I had it easier in the army outside of going to the field. Thinking bout it, the hardest thing about going to the field was packing. sh*t was chill when we were there.
I think they set the number so high hoping they will settle for at least $10, if they were asking for $10, they would have to settle for $8 (that's IF anything happens at all)

they deserve higher wages...

but fu*k McDonald's... I refuse to eat there.. not only because of how they treat their employees, but b/c of how horrible their food is for you...
Why...

because if you work hard enough and for a long enough time, you can make serious money managing or owning your own franchise??? without ANY education???

My buddy's sister in now gonna be a head manager there and gonna be making Bank... Especially for fu*kin MCdonalds...

13,920

is the salary working 40 hrs a week at mcdonalds if they were paid 7.25

How can you manage living off of that? including expenses rent transportation to and from work utilities and food. Not to mention miscellaneous bs that happens. Its like setting yourself up for failure.

After...

$7.25 x 40hr = $290 x 52weeks = $15,080 per year...

So I was right, that's around $950 a month. A SINGLE person with NO KIDS or ANY TYPE OF DEBT, will be BELOW the POVERTY line AFTER taxes but ABOVE it before taxes

that's $11,400 after taxes

U.S. Government poverty line for 2012
$11,945 for a single person

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...


Amen ,
