Thoughts on NY State soon raising the minimum wage for fast food workers…

Here it comes, y’all. Even more proof that liberalism is a mental disorder! NY State will soon be the first state in 6 years to raise the minimum wage of fast food workers… NYC will get it first, soon the rest of NY State. Then later on, I’m sure it’ll happen for the rest of the U.S.

For years fast food workers have protested this to happen and look like they got their wish.

Like everyone else, I disagree with it. Fast food jobs have low pay for a pretty good reason ’cause it’s a pretty easy job just to stand there and flip a burger or talk to customers in the drive-thru. They’ll be making a lot more money than people who work the harder jobs. They’ll be making more than factory workers, landscaping jobs, construction workers, office workers and they’ll be making more than people who work in a grocery store. These fast food workers will be making more than people who work as a waiter/waitress or as a cook at a real restaurant which is a much harder job. How is all this fair?

Fast food workers are not happy with their jobs ’cause they don’t get paid good? Well here is a bit of a reality check… why don’t they quit and find other jobs that pay well? I understand that some people have to get stuck working at fast food jobs ’cause they can’t get a job anywhere else. Maybe it’s because they didn’t have a good enough education which is why they get stuck working crap jobs. Well, if these fast food workers are getting stuck working crap jobs like McDonald’s, Burger King or Taco Bell well they brought it upon themselves since they didn’t get their life in order. Don’t blame everyone else. Blame yourself.

Here’s an interesting write-up about it by local news anchor, John Gray.

Read this, it’s interesting…

This is bullshit and it’s gonna hurt the economy even more. This smells “communism” too. Barack Obama will love this idea though ’cause he was the one who came up with the idea of raising the minimum wage so he would praise NY State for this.

Hope we get Donald Trump in office so this don’t happen everywhere else.
