    How about the peeps at Sea-Tac who got an instant raise to $15.00 per hour? They’re now asking for fewer hours ’cause they lost all their welfare freebies.

    I can’t tell for sure from the picture if there are robots doing the food preparation. If so can they be programmed to spit on the food too, like the old employees?

      I started out a $1.65. When you are a kid that is about what you are worth. It is how you learn a work ethic.

        Yes, my wages hadn’t moved in 15 years with inflation. In fact, worked two jobs just to make it through. Tell me about class. And I am white.

        Both my brother and I with routes @ 5:30 in the morning, six days a week, $10-15 p/wk, happy as pigs in shit. P.S. We both gave the money to mom to help out. Man were we happy back then in the late 50’s and 60’s…

      Let me see if I have this straight …

      The automated order takers are able to replace an employee but the store owner won’t replace the labor at $10 an hour and realize the profit but only at $15? Do I have this right?

      Seems to me the automation takes place under either circumstance.

        No benefits, no spitting in the food, no days off. In other words. $15 is a break point and puts a fire under his ass to buy the machines.
