FB status of person X: Hundreds of fast food workers are on “strike” in demands of raising the minimum wage. I wish I could just walk out of my job because the pay isn’t ideal. We’re all barely making ends meet, Real life sucks huh? #suckitupanddealwithit

Cassandra: i see what you’re saying, X. read this tho: lemme know what u think http://www.nytimes.com/…/older-workers-are-increasingly…
O: Werd. In a perfect world theyd all be unemployed by now and I guarantee you theres people out there willing to fill those positions for the wage they have now… But with Gimme America and this new wave of entitlement, that isnt likely to happen
Z: They shoulda went to school for a real job then
Cassandra: wow. not everyone has the means to go to school. and even schooling doesnt guarantee a job with a living wage.
X: I understand that older people don’t particularlly have an option either. But my mother is a nurse, and easily spends over 50 hours at her job every week (two jobs), she won’t be able to retire… she does get paid well.. But she will also be working for the rest of her life… You have to do what you have to do, you don’t really have a choice. I do agree though, that will the cost of living being so high in states such as New York the minimum wage should be more than $7.50. And Blanca Rose Osuna you’re right, however having your BA now is almost like having a freaking HS diploma! It’s really sad, you put your money into education to get ahead but come out in debt.. whole other shabang, especially with all of the people who can’t afford to even pull loans etc. The situation sucks, but when it comes down to it, I don’t even make enough to live off of… I’m very blessed to have a husband who can provide for me.
Z: I have a hard time believing these people could ONLY find a fast food job. And what makes them think they should be paid more than the next person making min wage (or they can’t be easily replaced)? Hard work pays off, not fast food jobs. But, I’m glad they’re on strike.. Maybe it’ll mean less obese people…
Regarding the strikes of fast food employees.
I can’t deal with this privileged, ignorant logic. I don’t know why I get involved with FB idiocy (re: person Z).
