Don't they have fully stocked underground shelters just waiting for the collapse they had such a role in creating?
That means the average McDonald's employee would have to work for 3.86 months straight at an overtime wage -- or 1.5 times her regular hourly pay -- to match what Skinner made in an hour, according to NerdWallet.

It's equally hypocritical to have an exponential increase in executive salaries while the labor force languishes on welfare and prices skyrocket...but then blame labor for the increase.
My own employer of 15 years promised to grandfather in benefits - twice. Each time they reneged. And no one except managers or above is full time. Store square footage and inventory decreased. Product quality declined. But executive pay increased...
It's ridiculous for anyone not to acknowledge that something is inherently broken here.

Or maybe the upper management and multimillionaire CEOs can take a smallish pay cut, and let their workers earn a slightly more livable wage.
That's a little bit of a misconception however well intentioned. If you took the ceo's entire salary per year of 8.7 million and made him work for absolutely nothing, then distributed it among the 1.7 million employees it would give them a pay raise of $5.11 a year. Not an hour. Per year. Won't lift them out of poverty.
Based on a 30 hour work week this would give them 1/3 of one cent an hour pay raise.
