I SURE AS “H” WOULDN’T WORK THAT HARD FOR $6 AN HOUR. 

Think about it. If you work at a fast food restaurant in Tuscaloosa, chances are YOU CAN’T EVEN AFFORD TO EAT THERE ON YOUR BREAK.

Fast food is an extremely hard job. MAKE NO MISTAKE. And for folks who work there– constant altercations with 

JERK CUSTOMERS WHO THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN THE EMPLOYEE-

Owners who pocket the profits and work employees too hard for their pay.

And YOU KNOW WHO MAKES UP THE DIFFERENCE?

YOU. ME AND YOUR MAMA.

That’s right– WE FOOT THE BILL IN THE FORM OF ASSISTANCE AND FOOD STAMPS.

So don’t think we are getting away with anything – WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO SUPPLEMENT THE EMPLOYERS PAYROLL?

Recently, I called the local corporate office of a POPULAR FAST FOOD CHAIN – ( which shall remain nameless ) to tell them how dissatisfied I am with their quality over the last year and they replied:

”We are aware of the problem. Nobody wants to work”

(WELL WHY ARE YOU ANSWERING THE PHONE AND NOT DOWN AT ONE OF THE STORES MANNING THE GRILL?)

The world has changed. We no longer need :

BELLHOPS

MOVIE THEATER USHERS

ACCORDION PLAYERS

SODA JERKS (go ahead and make your own STEVE & DC joke here) 

Maybe it’s time fast food restaurants changed their business model.

No teenager wants to work that hard for $6 an hour after taxes.

Do you?

I propose this:

Fast food restaurants should run every store with no more than 20 FULL TIME ADULTS WORKING.

Pay them a LIVING WAGE.

No teens. They are busy looking at their phones. Let them deal with their lax work ethic later in life.

Meanwhile I JUST WANT MY cock-a-doodie “ - - - - - - ‘s” to be worth the $13 it costs me for lunch now.
