    You could probably make more money panhandling than as an hourly worker at McDonalds.
    I mean, you wouldn't make enough there to actually live on, unless you were crammed illegally into an apartment with fifteen other McDonalds fry cooks.
    And you could just as easily get a job at the fast-food restaurant down the street... or better yet, go to Labor Ready and do day labor, make some real money.

    Same wage slavery, different location.

    If you're an adult, not in management and still working at McDonald's, there isn't much hope for you. (not you but you in general)

    Those type of jobs aren't meant to be lived on.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    My point.
    It's not as if the hourly wage-earners "can't afford" to go on strike.
    They're not living off what they make there, anyway.

    That's true but they're mostly kids which can be covered under their parent's plan.
    So it shouldn't be a big deal.

    Usually the older adults that work there are, near retirement or use it as a transition job.
