This $15.00 a hr. Wage increase really a cure?
NO! Because these are people who are, more or less casualties of “The Great Recession”. And they have been so used to things being this one way for so long! That this one thing is the only way they truly know.
Ever since the 1980’s! We as a ,nation. Have been going through a changeover which includes job/careers! ,And Yes! That includes those who only know one thing and one thing only!
There are way too many success stories about out those who have been “Down & out” ,to successful from that. For that not to be true.
Unfortunately! The unions are still behind the times. As for unions and management is concerned! If you do not have an excellent relationship with one another! Well! There are too many stories where the unions and its members lost as well as management.
And management is not without blame either! Because of profit over employee concern. They are in this blend as well.
I myself! Was one where even in the economic change over from manufacturing to a business & service economy. Was laid off because it. I was not out of a job no more than six months then I found another job. My only concern was just getting a job then figure the rest out later.
During that time! I mailed out resume’s and responded to classified ads. And even did temp work! And Yes! I too worked at McD’s two times and too advantage of this one franchisees ESOP! And while I was there. I found another job and went to work there as well as worked at McD’s again as well on weekends.
I have said here before! That even if the fast food Industry did cave in! Even our combo meal would be higher than we would be willing to pay.
But! Why? Only go for one area of business!
When you have the whole Industry to go after?
Am I the only one getting this?
