I spent my time in fast food when I was a teen. It sucks! Wanna real challenge? Try self employment. It's the worst job on the planet, but the most rewarding career you'll ever have. You'll never want to work for someone else again.



Depends on your trade and geographical location.

Many conmunities can't afford support additional small business's. This is due to market saturation because everyone is forced to start a business due to cost of living as a secondary income to supplement their full time job.

Maybe, maybe not.
But, I'll take doing what I do now over McDonald's 10 times out of 10.

No-one should have to work hard, because it is hard.

Everyone should get a corner office immediately upon graduating 6th grade.

With balloons.

Seriously though, life sucks sometimes. It isn't easy.

Never saw a guarantee that it was supposed to be easy either.

Maybe, but not any monkey can be a GOOD nurse. I've had both, and I'll take the good nurse any day of the week.

One could argue that they are worse. Those positions support and empower the banker regimes. FF worker may be unskilled but they are not maintenancing the machine.

Clearly your a super genius.

Just kidding. Most people think they are better than they are. Cookie cutter education makes you awesome!

I am CLEARLY not a super genius .Although I do watch Big Bang Theory and point out when they get it wrong....
I am just an average man that has to work harder than the average man to be an average man..

Your contradicting yourself in your statement.

On one hand you try to claim that it takes no brains to do the job will simultaneously pointing out that they always get the order wrong implying they have no brains.

So which is it?

Totally agreen. Fast food is akin to circuit training. All that yelling from the managers............."burgers, burgers, I need more burgers" and the fifty or so on the grill will only cook as fast as the heat will allow.

But Beezer you also know that the economy cannot support tens of millions of living wage jobs because they no longer exist in America.

So why do you always join these threads bashing the working poor full well knowing that the economy has tanked since 1994?

It sure does suck. And I'm not saying someone should flip a switch and put life on "easy mode" for everyone.

But people working an honest 40 should earn a livable wage. Those are my thoughts on it.

Here's an idea.......try not being picky at a fast food restaurant.

The cooks have the standard menu memorized, but when you get picky ass people like you changing up how they want their damn food, they have to actually stop their brains from being in automatic mode, and read how you want your food. That actually slows things down. So when you're making 10 burgers normally, then you see that the next order wants 2 burgers custom made, but each one is completely different, it's like hitting a speed bump. Then you're trying to read the order screen to make sure you're making his majesties burger the way they want it, all the while being yelled at by your manager to hurry up because food times are going up.

So seriously, if you're going to eat at a fast food restaurant, stop being a picky asshole. If you want something custom made, go to an actual restaurant, or make it yourself.

I'm a firm believer that fast food people deserve a liveable wage, because whether many want to admit it or not, their job is hard. If you don't believe me, I dare you to work in a busy fast food restaurant for a month.


Its not being a god dam picky arse hole if I order 3 big mac meals and 3 chicken select meals then get 2 big macs 2 hamburgers and some sort chicken burger,

So no I dont custom order thank you.

I order off the standard menu and the tards still consistently get the order wrong!

it does not look that way to me.
when i watch them it seems to me that none of them know what they are doing and they are all struggling.

most of the stuff back there is automated to some degree.

put the proper amount of frozen patties on the grill. close lid on grill. when you hear noise open grill.
dump frozen fries in hot oil. push button. when you hear noise remove fries from oil.

like i said, i know it is hard work but there is no skill to it. ive done fast food. my brother. my son. i know what it is all about.
depending on what you compare it to, it is physically demanding.

compared to my mother who works in an insurance office it is crazy hard.
compared to me working in a repair shop, its nothing.

try steel mills, foundries, oil rigs, farming.

thats hard #

I live in a small town of 5500 people. This town, and by extension county, supports many small businesses. If you have a product or service people need or want, they will patronize your business. If you treat them right, and give them good service, they'll come back. Again and again. This country was built on small business, and small business is still an important part of our economy.

that is correct.
your example is just one and yes, there are more out there.

the thing is, 99% of all humans over the age of 12 years old can work at a fast food joint.

Fast food is a job for kids, if your still an adult working fast food. It's because you made poor life choices.


Another one who is oblivous to their own success.

We live in a society, you didn't get there by yourself. You met the right people at the right time and things played out decently. It could have been better, it could have been worst.

Life isn't black and white. It's not because someone gives the effort that everything will fall right into place. Some will work their asses off their whole life and never get anywhere while some will get a phonecall offering them a 100k a year job.

A living wage is an arbitrary term.

Does it mean being able to afford basic cable? Or is HBO a right?

Life isn't easy, it isn't fair, it often sucks.

You can either make the best of it and work hard, or find ways around that.

I dno man I worked in a few print shops, you know factories that print things.

Those jobs were a complete joke. So easy I couldn't believe it. Standing around waiting for something to go wrong and then re webbing the press.

Easy easy work. Paid 50k a year to the pressman.

not a contradiction.
it is a reason why those jobs dont deserve high pay.

those jobs do not take brains or skill to do yet the super duper employees they hire still manage to mess up.

it is an observation that im sure everyone on this forum has witnessed.

I'm getting paid much better now, but my job is much easier and more relaxed than fast food ever was.


Your assumption is all wrong.

Your pay is NOT equated to how much you work, its equated to a need and the amount of people that can satisfy that need.

This is true in every industry and at any pay rate. This is why the H1 Visas were introduced and factory jobs shipped overseas. They corporations needed to increase the worker pool in order to drive the workers pay down.
