“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
My knee jerk reaction is to say screw those idiots but there is another side to this. If an industry pays there employees such a low wage that they qualify for gov programs like food stamps aren't we the tax payers subsidizing the industry? Maybe we are enabling them to not innovate and keep up with the times and become efficient. Maybe if they had to pay people $15.00 an hour there would be incentive to get some burger flipping robots instead and cut their work force in half. Every other industry is doing this to be efficient, why should us tax payers shoulder the load for fast food joints. There is the issue of HS kids that often take these jobs though and this would put the hurt to them. Maybe 18 and under should be exempt from the higher wage structure.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
I make about $17 bucks sorting mail for an accounting firm. If they jacked their pay up to $15 then I wouldn't be that much above the fry guy's wage . No way I say.
Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.
