Government Nanny-State Propaganda: Starving Kids Is Good for Them

Starving kids is now such a dogma, that Liberals congratulate corporations for padding their own profits to do it. I can almost feel sorry for businesses like McDonald’s due to all the grief they get by the zealots for the superstition of minimum wage. But pity can’t override the repugnance I feel when they get congratulated for reducing customer service under the pretense of health. You can find the story at NPR.org, that great fountain of establishment propaganda: “About A Third Of Read more […]

Fast Food Business Owners and Employees Are in a Mutual Relationship

A recent Chick-fil-A decision demonstrates that business owners are not opposed to their employees. The basic stance in the media and in politics has been that fast food business owners are the enemies and exploiters of their employees. Just like telling one lie demands a person make up other lies, so this myth creates others. If fast food business owners are exploiting their workers, this means that a free society is a place where mutually agreed upon payments are detrimental to one class of Read more […]

McDonald’s Sales in Decline So Let’s Raise Minimum Wage!

As you may know, unions are scheming for ways to force fast food franchises to raise their minimum wage. Usually, McDonald’s is treated as the wealthiest of these franchises. Everyone seems to assume they have plenty of money and are only refusing to pay employees more out of spite. I’ve mentioned before that McDonald’s is not that well off. And the bad news keeps coming. According to CNN: “McDonald’s July sales fell more than expected.” McDonald’s on Friday reported July sales results Read more […]

When Ungrateful, Economic Illiterates Go On Strike, Thank Them for Identifying Themselves

From USA Today: “Fast food workers strike for higher wages.” Hundreds of fast food workers walked off their jobs in dozens of U.S. cities on Thursday — reportedly forcing at least a few locations to temporarily close or re-staff while mostly managers filled-in — as sympathetic protesters in several dozen countries joined in a united call for wages of $15 an hour and the right to form a union. No violence was reported early Thursday. Restaurants such as McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and Read more […]

Evil Wage-Slave-Using Fast Food Restaurant… Gives Away Free Food To Help Weather Victims

America deserves a raise, says President Obama. Frankly, I get sick just thinking about what America deserves. I’m surprised Barack Obama had the temerity to mention the topic. What we have been hearing constantly is that McDonalds and other fast food restaurants and big box stores ought to pay their employees more—even though they pay as well as unions. The premise is that fast food establishments have the ability to pay a higher wage but don’t want to do so because they are so mean. Maybe Read more […]

CNBC Momentarily Acknowledges Our Horribly Overregulated Business Environment

Is anyone at CNBC intellectually able to connect-the-dots that the Leviathan government they worship is responsible for these economic realities? Andy Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., should know. His company is expanding rapidly abroad due to higher potential outside the U.S., which is hampered by what he sees as too much government regulation. “It’s difficult to open in the U.S., but we love the U.S. and continue to fight the good fight to open Read more […]

This Thursday Workers Will Protest To Demand Price Inflation And/Or More Unemployment

Clear proof that we don’t teach economics in school.

As the movement struggles to find pressure points in its quest for substantially higher wages for workers, organizers said strikes were planned Read more […]

St. Louis Serves Subsidized Fast Food: Will Higher Minimum Wage Law Help?

I’ve been hearing a lot of noise lately on my local public radio station about how the area is suffering do to fast food restaurants refusing to pay their workers more. The St. Louis Business Journal reports: Fast food workers and other minimum-wage earners told lawmakers Monday at St. Louis City Hall that their wages should be raised so that they don’t have to rely on public assistance. The workers and their advocates touted a highly-publicized study, published recently by the University of Read more […]
