Telling someone that they will end up working at McDonald’s has sometimes been used as a way to motivate people to pursue an education or simply get their life together.
Well, what if you did end up working at McDonald’s and had to survive on minimum wage?
Recently, McDonald’s and Visa teamed up to provide a financial planning site for its low-pay workforce.
McDonald’s provided a sample budget where they show how their employees can survive working at their restaurant. But the budget is sketchy as it shows that their employee works a second job and pays a ridiculous low amount for health insurance. Check out this article on Yahoo to see the budget and get more information.
So next time you get an order wrong at the “Golden Arch” or the line takes too long to move just remember they are probably contemplating about how they are going to pay next month’s bills. (Just kidding there is no excuse for bad service!)
