How I Get By: A Week in the Life of a McDonald’s Cashier – VICE

I started my career working the night shift stocking shelves at Home Depot and riding the bus. I now own a 180 full time employee agency and am on the other side. The solution here must come from the government… McDonald’s and no other single employer can raise wages as their competitors will not and they will go out of business due to being too expensive.

I agree with the Fight for $15… But I think they need to attach this to inflation or somehow as a percentage of the highest incomes in the economy. Otherwise Trump will just keep pressuring the Fed to print more money and $15 will only be worth $5 in today’s money.
