[QUOTE="rilpas"]

[QUOTE="thegerg"]You seem to be confused. I am not greedy. I pay my employees what their labor is worth at a wage to which we agree. Another $80 a month may not put us out of business, but am extra $80 a month (it would be much more than that if MW was increased to $10 or$15) multiplied by all MW employees mightWhiteKnight77

You seem to be confused. You are greedy, its a shame that people like you exist, if you can't even afford to pay 5% over the minimum wage you are for the lack of a better word: trash

I am going to ask you the same question I asked bigfootnumbers (that he still hasn't answered), would you pay $10 for a cheeseburger or $20 for a gallon of gas?

where to these numbers come from? a cheese burger where I come from costs 2 euro or less, how would increasing the worker's wages from 7.25 to say... 8 dollars would increase the price of a burger five times?

[QUOTE="thegerg"][QUOTE="rilpas"]

you seem very confused, becase your comments were very racist, insulting against the TOS

rilpas

No, they were not racist. Racism is the belief that one race is superior to another. My post was in no way racist. You seem to be confused.

you made a slavery comment towards the black etnicity, which is very much racist. You seem to be confused.

You spelled Ethnicity as etnicity. You seem very confused grammatically.

ahem:

'Just because you think we should reenslave black people to wash dishes for free'

how is this not a racist comment?

rilpas

Because he made no mention of one race being superior to the other. He spoke of someone wanting to enslave someone else.

So if I type the word slavery I'm racist? Great logic.

thegerg

ahem:

'Just because you think we should reenslave black people to wash dishes for free'

how is this not a racist comment?

Because that comment, in no way, insinuates that the poster feels that one race is superior to another. Do you know what the word "racist" means?

so you're greedy and racist?

damn, you're just one awesome guy, aren't you?

Nothing in this thread is needed. Simply because something isn't needed doesn't make it racist or bad in any other way. The black part was mentioned because I'm in the US and that is a race which, historically, was more widely enslaved than others in this country. I didn't know that he was black, but that has nothing to do with it. It was meant to be provocative and to make a point to the other poster. He made a false accusation against me, so I did the same against him.

As it seems that you have not completely read this thread or are up on the story, those striking fast food workers want to double what they are making, not just a measley 75 cents. When you double the wage, prices have to rise somewhere and the what is being sold will increase in price and double the price of a burger will not cover said wages. Answer the question, would you pay that much for a burger?

Ah in that regards I agree with you, though I think they should receive higher wages, I don't think they should be payed double.

Though, as someone who has witnessed strikes before (though as an accountant I'm usually on the greedy ceo's side) I can tell that most like the number they chose is simply meant to pressure their bosses and draw attention, the REAL number they're aiming for is likely much lower

I'm guessing a 20-30% increase.

And to answer your question, would I be okay with going from say... a 2 euro chesse burguer to a cheese burguer costing 2.6 euro? absolutely

Not necessarily. I do those things, and I am neither greedy or racist. Maybe you should look up what the word "racist" means, You still don't seem to grasp that one at all. Let me ask you a question, if you don't mind. I just want to gauge your level of greed. Let's say that you go to the grocery store and your total at the register is $45.78. How much do you pay for your groceries? 5% more? 10% more?

10% extra is a fair number and wouldn't kill me.

#226 Posted by airshocker (31250 posts) -

The point of the matter isn't whether an increase of the minimum wage would hurt you specifically. Some labor isn't worth that much, and to arbitrarily increase it would do more harm than good.

So do we at least agree that there's room for wage improvement in the fast food industry? the gerg I'm sorry if I made a false accusation, but the proper thing to do is to state why what I said was false, not make outlandish statements that might come accross as racially insensitive to someone who's ethnic backround you know nothing of.

Yusuke420

The proper thing to do would have been for you to first ask my opinion, not assign one to me. I'm sorry if you were offended, but maybe next time you'll think twice before making ignorant accusations.

BTW, another poster in this thread felt it appropriate to call another a slave driver. Maybe you should jump his balls too.

BTW again, look up the definition of the word "racist." You might be surprised at what that word actually means.

The problem with increasing pay, and as an accountant, you should see that an increase in wages means an increase in the cost of a product. It isn't McDonald's paying those wages, it is Greg Fisher Foods of Pasternak NJ (fictitious franchise name and city) paying those wages and probably making a very slim profit a year (maybe 6% for fast food joints). Increase the price of a product, and fewer people buy said product, thus decreasing an already slim profit margin (and a business should make at least a 15% if not more).

The Average Profit Margin for a Restaurant details much about different types of restaurants.

Giving people more than $8 an hour for working in a fast food joint is nothing but retail suicide.

I also try to avoid low quailty food places whenever I can because I know the workers don't really want to be there and it's just a paycheck (meager one at that) to them. IF you go to places like In and Out (where even the bottom person makes 11.00 an hour) you can get great tasting food that is reasonably priced and the workers are all friendly and upbeat!

Funny thing is the managers almost always put the more happy and upbeat employees in front. The people who wash dishes or are doing fried products are usually pretty depressing.

Ah in that regards I agree with you, though I think they should receive higher wages, I don't think they should be payed double.

Though, as someone who has witnessed strikes before (though as an accountant I'm usually on the greedy ceo's side) I can tell that most like the number they chose is simply meant to pressure their bosses and draw attention, the REAL number they're aiming for is likely much lower

I'm guessing a 20-30% increase.

And to answer your question, would I be okay with going from say... a 2 euro chesse burguer to a cheese burguer costing 2.6 euro? absolutely

The problem with increasing pay, and as an accountant, you should see that an increase in wages means an increase in the cost of a product. It isn't McDonald's paying those wages, it is Greg Fisher Foods of Pasternak NJ (fictitious franchise name and city) paying those wages and probably making a very slim profit a year (maybe 6% for fast food joints). Increase the price of a product, and fewer people buy said product, thus decreasing an already slim profit margin (and a business should make at least a 15% if not more).

The Average Profit Margin for a Restaurant details much about different types of restaurants.

Giving people more than $8 an hour for working in a fast food joint is nothing but retail suicide.

No offense, but your theory is flawed, alright, so restaurants have an 8% margin, but how much of that are the wages? a lot of it could be from renting the place, or food costs, health and safety costs, insurance, etc.

you're going off in a tangent with data that you don't have

who said I was demanded anything? 10% is a fair price for me for just about everything, it's a fair number when I pay more for something it's usually my go to percentage

No one said you were "demanded anything." Now, how much more do you pay? I'm not asking how much more you'd pay if more was demanded from you, but how much more you pay anyway. I know what the answer is, it's 0%. You pay only what you are required. You selfish, greedy little man.

again: 10%

already told you three times: 10%

I give a 10% tip

it's my go-to thing 10%

get it? 10%

is that sinking in yet?

You've finally given an answer to he question that was asked. Your previous posts (that you'd give 10% if it was demanded, that you think 10% is fair, etc.) were not answers to the question. However, I find it hard to believe that you pay 10% more for your groceries than is required. Why did you start this odd practice? Do you overpay by 10% on everything? Movie tickets? Cars? Plane tickets? Videogames?
