Seems most of the people working at Starbucks or fast food places are
teenagers. What should their wages be…? $15/hr? $20/hr?
Well, if there were more companies, there would be more demand for labor
and that would encrease the value of the salaries of the workers, based on
the law of supply and demand. That’s why libertarians don’t like most of
the regulations, because most them just step in the way of creation of new
businesses and keeps the big corporations at the top, controling the
country with the help of the cronnies that operate the Government in
their trade of benefits between each other and in detriment of the ordinary
I’ve actually worked at two restaurants under the Yum! Brands name, and I
have to say, the pay itself is lousy, but what they expect you to do for
that is even lousier.
When I worked at KFC/A&W in high school (a place I am NEVER eating at
again. I’ve seen what they do to their food, at least at THAT location) I
was hired on as a cashier. Apparently, in that position, I was required to
take the orders, take the money, PACK the orders, hand the food to the
customer, clean the bathrooms, bus the tables (yes, people refused to pick
up after their damn selves because they’re assholes), take out the trash,
sweep the parking lot (yes, seriously), clean dishes, keep track of how old
the food was and how much was ready at the time, and cook all of the food
that wasn’t bone-in chicken. And if someone was pissed off because the
tables weren’t clean because I was too busy taking and making orders for
the lunch rush, who was to blame? Me. Because I couldn’t handle a multitude
of jobs that required me to be in several places at once.
I’m sorry, but with all that money they were saving by giving me minimum
wage, they probably could have hired more people to do some of those jobs
that aren’t really under the umbrella of the term “Cashier” and kept me
from developing premature wrinkles from the stress.
TJ, why no mention of the fact that these companies are willing to hire
employees that no other company will have?
Fer’xample, you don’t see many octogenarians working in industrial labour
jobs, yet Wal-Mart will hire them to do a job that amounts to standing
around and not frowning too hard…
Well apparently if these corporations are paying less than what the labour
is worth there wouldn’t be thousands of people trying to get these jobs. If
the wages were too low people wouldn’t take these jobs.
sadly i work for number 8….
This is why I hate my fellow humans. We’re really quite disgusting, when
you think about it.
KROGER is a company that makes products for Fred myers.
lol I knew Walmart was #1
I m just wondering if the economy is growing and their is inflation why
shouldnt minimum wage grow with it ? may be their will be unemployment but
the growing economic should be able to cop with it shouldnt it ?
the ad that played before this video
was for Kmart….
A worker in USA has to work a whole day for a $100!??! Wooooow you must be
so miserable.I’ll just ignore the fact that the minimum wage in Bulgaria is
$250 FOR A MONTH….
well this list is not correct for my area. Not the order anyways, most
places pays roughly 1$ less then the local walmart. Sad thing is. If you
want more then 8 an hour living here you better have a good car cause your
driving an easy 60 miles minimum a day working. No jobs and no bus routs to
It’s kind of normal to be payed 8 or 9 dollars per hour if you’re not
worth more, nobody is supposed to make a living or feed a family off simple
jobs like that.
its rediculas to say o you would have to work fo x amount of hours to get y
so its bad pay for example ford workers would have to work for alot more
than 18 hours to get a for car but is that bad pay no you dont factor in
cost and production factors you act like the money for that latee and
sandwhich or the coat is full profit for those companys
I WAS exspecting MCDONALDS but not TARGET!
So much greed
What about Jack in the box?
$9!? walmart must hate the fact they bought Asda here in the Uk our
national minimum is more then that.
Why does TJ does not believe in the tip system?
