yeh sure mcdonalds is a multi billion dollar buisness. But thats the big picture. When you look at the big picture, the obvious comment would surely be they can pay us more. But try looking beyond that union mentality to see the thousands of private owners out there that struggle from month to month. And there are many of those such owners out there. As for myself being happy with 7.90 an hour, I'm very happy.

What do expect a teenager to make? I have many friends in differnt jobs that started between 7.00--7.50. But guess what, their still at that amount. They laughed at what I was making to begin with, but guess who's laughing now?? And guess who put applications into mcd's?

What I,m trying to say is to give your head a shake. Sure a higher paying job would be nice, but realisticly teenagers don't need to make billions, and don't need either. There are adults working at my mcd's and they all make well over 8.50 an hour. Most of them are either seniors who don't need the money but like dealing with people and filling in their day at mcd's, or people who's spouse has a big time job somewhere and their just there to have more spending money or to help out with an odd bill. And as for myself being qualified, the last time I looked this is a debating room, and a free country. Oh, and by the way mcd's does have a profit sharing plan. Try to get your facts right.
