: hey death, take a look around you, mcd's wasn't the first to franchise and it won't be the last.

Indeed not, however, its still a neat system for avoiding responsibility... ;)

: Maybe for you and the rest of the mcd wage bashers, flippin burgers is rocket science and you should get rewarded hadsomely for it. But for the rest of the world it is quite easy, and we get paid properly for the job we are doing. Hell, why not pay a DT person the same as a doctor!!

No, you get paid the value at which they think they can sustain your labour power- they do not pay you the value of your work. you deserve more, because they are STEALING from you, stealing your time, and your dedication- and its not just flipping the Burgers, its the discipline, the obedience, the Understanding customers and procedures.

If I had my way, no one would have any wages, coz we'd get shot of the whole rotten property system, and live 'from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs.', which would of course mean the end of McDonalds....

"Not the conservative cry of 'a fair days wage for a fair days labour' but the revolutionary cry of 'the Abolition of the wages system!'"
