They don't want to raise the hourly rate because they figure covidbux will end soon

Why has it taken this long for wagies to realize that they've always had this power? Imagine if they realized it earlier, they might've ben able to get enough consetions to make working at those shitholes not completely soul sucking and terrible.

the price of things are increasing and the wages arent compensating
theres no reason to work in fast food anymore, its fallen enough below the cutoff point of a livable wage that youre functionally losing money wasting your time there
these food chains are gonna start sputtering and dying these next few years, first step is probably shutting down a lot of the stores and setting up contract gigs with food courts at shit like hospitals and public schools instead

>>
>>64662636
So the average McDonalds franchise is stealing 150,000 from its employees? Most of whom could really use that money? Sounds like they could get a life-changing raise that would stop people from living paycheck to paycheck.

Profits are unpaid wages.
>>
>>64663229
It highly depends on the area, but franchising a McDonald's is extremely expensive and there's a lot of profit to be loss from repairing equipment, etc.
It also costs the franchise owner a million dollars to even begin doing that. So basically you're a whiney cunt.
>>
>>64663229
Awe come on now, Mr. Shekelsteinburg needs to pay his bills too
>>
>>64663247
sounds to me like McDonalds itself should be turned over to its workers in that case, the franchising expense is basically a monopoly rent paid to headquarters.Still money flowing to rich people and not to workers' pockets.
Losses to repairs and such are included in gross revenue, but not net profit, they're an expense just like wages and obviously would be paid however the place was organized.

Raising the pay to 20/h increases the cost of the bigmac like 40c. It's fine.

Not me

>>64663267
Increasing the salary of each employee by $5000 reduces the net profit by over one third.
See how the math doesn't work out?
Employees aren't putting down any investment, they get a steady pay and shoulder no risks
Basically you need to shut the fuck up and get a real job.

>sounds to me like McDonalds itself should be turned over to its workers in that case
Did you miss the part where it costs >$1mil in order to build a mcdonalds? If you think you can crowdfund that shit from a bunch of fast food worker tier people then you're out of your fucking mind. What you're asking, then, is for some benevolent billionaire to drop the cash to build a restaurant, then transfer ownership to the "workers". Good luck with that.

There is no incentive for people to invest their money if they can't reasonably expect a profit in return. You gay shit will result in things like the "food deserts" black communities have been rewarded with in return for their behavior: when building a business is a losing proposition, potential business owners will stop building them.

What you need to understand is that franchise owners don't NEED to build restaurants. Investors don't NEED to back supermarkets or housing projects. There are a shitton of potential avenues for investment and if you make certain avenues unattractive or unprofitable, you're only hurting yourself. Wealthy people will simply invest elsewhere. They'll make money regardless, you can be sure of that. Meanwhile, you don't have anywhere to buy food, you don't have any local restaurants, you can't find an affordable place to live because no one wants to deal with the hassle of being a landlord or having to wrangle local crackheads who think they deserve $20/hr for flipping burgers.

To put it more simply: you need wealthy people. Wealthy people don't need you.

That's not what the problem is, you actually get more money from neetbux than working at a fastfood restaurant.
If you work at a fast food now you're losing money
>>
>>64663566
The building's already made in this case. So what's to be lost from just, essentially, cutting the workers in for a bigger part of the profit? They already get paid out of the revenue, they would just get paid out more of the revenue.
>Wealthy people will simply invest elsewhere.
Let 'em. If McDonald's disappeared tomorrow we'd all be better off. Maybe they can get replaced with locally owned restaurants that don't use pink slime. Nobody fucking cares about impotent capitalist threats to pick up their toys and go home.

who the fuck even eats mcdonalds? eating poison.
>>
>>64663648
>if you don't go to college or trade school you literally deserve to die
Fuck you. Everyone who works 40 hours a week deserves to make enough money to survive. McDonald's can afford to pay their employees a living wage but they choose not to so the CEOs can buy an extra yacht to add to their collection this year. The problem would resolve itself overnight if the mega rich would just be ever so slightly less mega rich. But we can't have that, think of the rich! What would they do if they could only afford a $500 million mansion instead of a $600 million mansion???? :(

I can concur, I drove past the drive thru line yesterday and it stretched into oncoming traffic. who tf even eats this shit, it must take atleast half and hour to get your order LOL frescos mad as hell right now

I'm sure McD the corp takes a decent chunk of the actual profits and $150k is what's left for the franchise owner.

>>64663812
There is room for a lot of businesses to pay more wages, however, McDonald's is franchise-run, they're not all run by the overall company. Not every franchisee can afford to just up salaries out of nowhere, considering additional costs involved -- I feel like people always gloss over the other costs involved with businesses, especially food.

A CEO who makes $40M, or whatever, they could afford to take a hit.
>>
>>64663566
>. You gay shit will result in things like the "food deserts" black communities have been rewarded with in return for their behavior
McDonald's literally is the fucking "food desert" and a huge part of the problem because it displaces healthier eating options. Every hood in America is jam-packed with fast food joints. No one gives a shit if your dumb chain which sells horrible fake food wants to pick up its ball and go home.

>>64663776
>Let 'em. If McDonald's disappeared tomorrow we'd all be better off. Maybe they can get replaced with locally owned restaurants that don't use pink slime. Nobody fucking cares about impotent capitalist threats to pick up their toys and go home.
This anon is right, megacorps are the reason society is so fucked nowadays, if fast food joints and delivery services fucked off the economy would be in a much better state.
Also how the fuck is the internet not free yet? The internet services are shutting down all the free access in my country.
I'm not saying capitalism was a mistake but it obviously got out of control, just look at the state of the music industry, all those copyright infrigement claims are killing the artfort, if a riff is even slightly similar to something in a song owned by warner or sony, they're the ones making money off of it, warner owns the fucking happy birthday song, you can now get sued for singing happy birthday.
We need more control by the state and less control by the corporations, or else we're gonna keep being slaves until our overlords fuck off on mars
>>
>>64663913
People like to shift the blame for this onto the franchisees and onto the nature of franchises themselves, as if the parent company has absolutely no influence in how much franchises profit. There is a number of things the parent company could do, from lowering the cost of the franchise, to paying for certain aspects of running the restaurants such as equipment and repair, to lowering how much of a cut they take from the profit, to better profit sharing models, etc.
If
>McDonald's can afford to pay their employees a living wage but they choose not to
isn't specific enough for you, then
>McDonald's can afford to allow their franchises to afford to pay their employees a living wage but they choose not to
should be.

That's because a decent portion of the population are liberal COVID hysterics who want to remain in their house permanently despite having gotten two shots.

Basically they'll only take jobs where they can either work from home or won't have too see too many people. Musicians are also totally fucked now because a decent number of people will never go to a concert again due to this COVID shit. Really makes me wish that I lived in Singapore where they swiftly dealt with that shit.

You will be burned out in under a month. You will get no training, be put on double shifts to open and close 5 days a week (and called in on both off days when your coworkers don't bother to show up), and will be endlessly berated by shrieking boomers that are furious that you ran out of special sauce at a time when supply chains are disrupted and every fat retard in the country is descending like a locust swarm to eat inside a McDonalds again (as though that was ever something anyone would ever honestly miss).

Then some homeless guy will manage to shit in the paper towel dispenser/hand dryer while trying to shoot up in the bathroom, and you'll have to clean that out along with the pile of used needles he'll leave behind.

Well im not working because it would cost me $16 a day in gas to get to and from work.
Min wage is $10.
40hrs x 4 = $1600 a month
= $1440 a month after taxes without paying insurances etc

$16 x 20 days = -$320
Which leaves me $1120 a month in pocket.


vs
I can get $200 a month in food and not be a slave for someone else's profit and not bust my ass for no future.
Not expose myself to sick people.
Not deal with people's shit.
Not stress myself out.
Not have to work myself to suicide even though I'm extremely disabled but my state won't acknowledge it, but they give disability for morbidly obese people that caused their own problems while I caused none of my own.

On top of that everyone online and everywhere in real life treats me like shit and attacks me constantly, so why would I ever fucking help any of you?
You've never been nice to me.
You always attack me and treat me like shit.

Ill just continue making investments and working to get paid under your federal poverty line bullshit requirements, and when my investments work out I'll own the businesses and products you'll be paying me for.
A decade of my life to afford 1/5th of a house?
Only an idiot would do this level of slavery.
You could beg on the street corner for more money or suck someone's dick or fuck their pussy as their live in bf or gf etc.
Why in god's name would you slave away 50 years of your life just to fucking die owning a house.
You only have one life to live. Every moment is precious and you choose to waste it at mcdonalds?

these companies apparently need these people to work these jobs or they wouldn't be desperately trying to hire them.

Do you know how shitty and full of fillers a sandwich has to be to generate profit at $1 each? (I know most of the profit is from the $2 drinks that cost them <1 cent)
It's earthworms, basedbeans, sawdust, and lard with enough salt and sugar jammed into it that your tongue thinks it's good. Fuck, if you're paying $1 for food, it simply isn't good. Fucking dog food cans cost more than $1.

>>64664222
>don't understand supply and demand
it seems you are the retard that doesn't understand supply and demand. These companies are desperately in search of labor to operate their businesses. People are not willing to take the jobs unless they come with large wages. There is great demand for labor, and the supply is low. Kind of funny how that can work against you bootlicking cunts, isn't it?
>>
>>64662298
Some places would rather call up people that applied years ago that they ghosted to offer a job instead of raising their wages
>>
>>64662215
you'd quit too if you were being paid minimum wage to serve shit that barely qualifies as food to roasties all day. Fuck anyone that doesn't give a livable wage
>>
>>64663320
Since everyone is walking out their choice is to either make less money or make no money at all
>>
And here I am having applied to multiple places and can't even get an email back. Maybe its more like shitty management rather than people not wanting to work.
