My first full time radio job was paying me $3.25 an hour when I started and they bumped it to $3.40 when I became "full time".
I was married, had an apartment, two cars and was rasing my infant son. My bills were paid on time.
What the hell are these people bitching about?
Of course your wages have never been a problem for you...because you've always been the employee and never the employer.Originally Posted by Artois
I feel quite fine.
Honestly, wages have never been a significant concern for me. I've been very blessed.
Try running a business and see how "blessed" you feel when you're faced with a situation like this.
I think we also have to consider the notion of where these outcries started from. We all understand that wages range differently around the country, it's not unrealistic that in NYC or other places $15 an hour is equivalent to about $10 an hour elsewhere. For what it's worth though, I've seen Macca's offering $11-12 an hour for openers and closers in none major cities before.
They're not asking for twenty to thirty dollars an hour. Although one could argue that with payroll taxes, the former is approaching that.
