McDonalds Workers Respond to Absurd Budget
I posted a card yesterday that included a sample budget McDonalds made for its workers. The budget featured $0 for heating, and still required a second full time job! These are a few real budgets, submitted by real McDonalds employees. Unsurprisingly, all of them are going further into debt each month.

@minjaeturtles I saw this and had a card qued up for tonight about it! Great minds think alike
I mean that 1. to expect this kind of job was not meant to be a career, 2. also that obamacare will create an economy where people will need a few part time jobs to get by instead of 1 full time job...and 3. Yes ....I live in a death spiral state. I see this first hand where it is more desirable to be in the welfare system than to work for what would equate to a few dollars more a month.
Can you explain why obamacare will do what you're claiming? Also, what's a good solution to your last point?
@curtisb haha I guess stole your card my bad. You can still write an opinion on it though! @jj47474 Are you saying that it is preferable to hold few part time jobs and live on welfare, vs. work more in a full-time job for marginally more pay where the benefits will be covered by the employer? (I may have completely misunderstood you haha)
even if I misunderstood you, @jj47474 let's consider the two aforementioned options: for the worker, the part-timer may work less hours overall while receiving the same benefits. However, for the society overall, is that a good thing? who bears the burden of paying for welfare? high-earning individuals, most likely, right? America has been able to attract the best talent from the globe because it paid them. If high-earning individuals are taxed more, wouldn't that eventually lead to the bleeding of talent and thus be detrimental to the nation in the long run? @curtisb ?
