Maybe most McDonald’s workers don’t make a career of fast food today. But will that be true in 10 or 15 years?
As I wrote earlier today, the corporate brass at McDonald’s seem to believe that in order to survive on what they pay their restaurant workers, you need a second job. And hey, credit where it’s due: they’re probably right. Fast food wages are terrible. If you’re relying on a minimum- or near-minimum-wage check each month, it means you’re living life on the financial precipice.
