A lot of fast food employees are going on strike because they want to be paid $15 dollars an hour or something closer to a living wage.
I love that millions of people support higher wages for McDonald’s employees, but not one person is willing to start tipping them. I have not seen one person even bring up the possibility of tipping fast food employees. TV pundits won’t even touch it. They will talk about racial tension, torture, and scandals, but tipping fast food employees is outside of their comfort zone. And then there are millions of people that are determined that doubling an employees hourly wage is the only thing that can be done to solve the employees’ standard of living problem.
Of course if fast food employees did make $15 an hour… they wouldn’t get an employee discount. If you give fast food employees $15 dollars an hour and a 15 percent employee discount, you are going to have a gigantic shift in the labor force of people flocking to the fast food sector, which would cripple dozens of American industries in the process.
