Don't be so narrow minded Dan, Other things do happen beyond the wonderful world you live in. Dont go around believing that because it didn't happen to you or you didn't see it happen then it just didn't happen. Did I mention I'm going on a cruise on the titanic next week, it's supposed to be the fastest and biggest ship ever built and it cant be sunk!.
Anyway, I too work for Hungry Jacks and have for around 5 years. Now, I can say that workers are treated like crap, but then again if you get along with the management team then your life is easy (which you obviously did Dan). I think that the crap that the workers cop goes higher than the managers. It's because those people up above are a bit unrealistic sometimes. The pressure put on the managers is bullshit.
HERE IS A KNOWN FACT: The rostering manager is told that they have work with an average hourly pay rate for each employee of about $6/hr. So for someone that is 20 years old they would be double the amount they're allowed to roster for. This is why a 20yr old would get jack shit hours. It's not the managers fault because they'll get their arse kicked if they give them too many hours. I have had other jobs in between HJ's and none of them have cared too much about my age or how much they have to pay me. So, If you ask me HJ's has a case of descrimination to answer, don't you think?.
I could list many more things that I have seen and heard but I won't.
