McDonald's staff cry victory after workers get 'biggest raise in 10 years'
That's one small step for mankind, and one small leap from Ronald.
but Sass, those were classically Thatcherite policies that new Labour were implementing - and no one has ever claimed otherwise (not on here
The unavoidable logic of practically everything else you have ever argued leads to your support of such policies
earth calling Sass: those obscene pay packets, that wealth gap, that concentration of so much wealth and power into so few hands: they are all part and parcel of Thatcherism. That was always their end goal
to wit, and famously:Ayn Rand
That's an awful pay gap for people of different ages!
The differentials between management and worker are low though. They are not just shafting the peasants.
Not lovin' it: McDonald's facing second wave of strikes as union ballots workers
The branch managers and possibly even area managers in Mac's are treated like peasents. Bit like the staff in Amazon warehouses really. People want cheaper Than cheap prices and have no concern for the price others are paying.
And yet, if you surveyed people with the question 'Would you pay 50p more for Macs if it meant staff getting properly paid', I'll bet most would say yes.
I bet even more would say yes if the 50p per burger was taken from the companies profits or the execs salaries and perks.
You're right - it's prob not the incessant demand for profit that's at fault here. Not at all.
As well as today's McDs strike I saw a thing just now that seemed to suggest TGI Friday's has balloted for strike action, 75% response, 100% for striking? Can anyone confirm that?
TGI Fridays hit with first ever strike ballots over tips and minimum wage abuses
