This is exactly what the LEFT pushed for.
Fast food chains were never meant to be a place for someone to raise a family of 6. They were to be part time positions with some full-time advancements. Mostly the fast food restaurants were for school aged kids, to learn how to interact with people, with a job, to offer spending money, and to begin responsibility learning for their future.
The part time position was not intended to pay for a house, it is a stepping stone to move on…
$15.00/hr x 8 hrs= $120/day x 5 days= $600/week x 52 weeks = $31,200/year!!
Of course when this happens, like it did today in Los Angeles, the poor and unskilled workers will go on unemployment, then on Welfare, and cost American workers more to support them.
McDonald’s recently came out with their answer to those that want $15/hr pay… ROBOTS!
Many other food chains AND now RESTAURANTS alike are now switching over to kiosks/touchscreens to replace their cashiers, and servers too! For the same reasons as McDonald’s is making this move worldwide, these businesses simply cannot afford to operate and pay your demanded minimum wage of $15 per hour plus benefits to their workers/servers!
Got any other bright ideas Mr. Obama? Directly from YOUR rhetoric and demands against America’s private businesses, you and your minions just singlehandedly put 10s of thousands of minimum wage workers nationwide on the unemployment line!
In addition Mr. Obama, YOU have caused these minimum wage jobs to be permanently eliminated and swept away from America’s workplace.
