This is true. I work third shift at a gas station. I've only been there a couple weeks and already have a shot at management.



The other woman I work with on third shift is in her 40's, living with her unemployed b/f in his cousins house and she doesn't plan on ever leaving her job. She seems to have no desire to move up in the company or to even go out and find another job she might enjoy.



No thanks. I'll never be that way. I also don't feel that fast food should be paid more than minimum. It's not meant to be a job you can live off of. It's meant to be a starter job for teens or college students.

If they get paid more does that mean fastfood would cost more? Because lately it is starting to cost more. To go to smitty's (similar to dennys) a meal will cost my family under about 30 dollars (2 entrees, 2 coffees and a kids meal). To go to mcdonalds the same costs about 22-24 dollars (and not nearly as good of a meal in my opinion).

I thnk a lot of that has to do with inflation, and fast food companies are under a lot more scrutiny about what is in their food, now, as people are more aware of, and more willing to educate themselves on the additives in food.

If I get a salad at mcdonalds (the kind with the chicken and whatnot) it is around 7 dollars! A cheeseburger is 2 dollars. But I won't eat the cheeseburger. Happy meal is 4 dollars. A couple years ago a cheeseburger at wendys was $1.39, now I believe it is closer to $1.99. It doesn't seem that much but that is 60 cents which is 40% of the original price...in only a couple of years.

yeah, its the added cost of having to put real food in their food. LOL, only in the last few years did people really start to realize what was going on. "Fast Food Nation" was a hell of a wake up call for Americans.
