As long as there is a vast supply of kids who have never held a job and who haven't a clue how to do anything except put fries in a bag, they will be low paid, no matter how much customer attitude they have to put up with.
Happiness is welcoming our new baby girl Anna Maria into the world Saturday night. Everyone was so happy that you couldn't help but have tears in your eyes.
Most women wear their dresses too tight and too short. If they would wear them just a little looser and longer, they would look like "ladies", and hopefully be a lady.
As much effort as we spend telling employers what they CAN'T do -- who they can't hire, for how much, who they can't fire, who they can't focus their product toward, and what benefits they can't leave out -- it's amazing any of us have a job. It's a tribute to the American spirit that so many people still want to start a business.
Began a full time job in 1959 for $1 an hour and SO happy when found new job that paid $1.50!
You don't get paid based on who you have to interact with in your job. You get paid based in your value to the company. And they have the right and the information to determine how valuable you are to them. If you don't like what they offer you for that value go somewhere else.

To Ernie Suggs. Frankly my dear I dont give a damn if you like the movie.
Scarlett can't shine Marilyn Monroe's shoes because Marilyn is no longer with us. Get a grip. Two entirely different kind of actresses.
This is a new day and time, and the majority of the managers or franchise owners in fast foods are grown people with families to feed.
Scarlett Johanssen could buy Marilyn Monroe's shoes...and shine them if she feels like it. After all, I'm sure some collector would sell her a pair for the right price; and Marilyn can't do anything to stop it. Not being dead has advantages.
The yellow plums at my farm never turn red and are on trees.
Not everybody can afford a college education. So just having a job is just as important to me then you saying go to school.
I have been giving our neighbor vegetables out of our garden all season long. The father lost his job and they are really hurting. My husband has hired him to help clean up our pastures and pays him extremely well. Every little bit helps when you need work. I pray they get back on their feet soon.They are such good people.
Our neighbor grows those huge old fashion watermelon. They are so good. Everyone in the neighborhood line up to buy his melons. You just can't beat the kind called "Moon and Stars". They are huge round ones with green-black skin with a yellow circle and several small circles.
I think a better question is why a skilled machinst is only making $15 an hour. Is this still 1985?
I'm 59 and one of my favorite dinners growing up (and still today) was homemade biscuits, sorghum syrup, scrambled eggs and salmon patties. That's good eating!
