McDonald's Tells Worker She Should Sign Up For Food Stamps

McDonald's Tells Worker She Should Sign Up For Food Stamps

Commented Oct 26, 2013 at 12:07:56 in Business

“So the answer to paying this lady low wages for 10 years is to go on gov sponsored Welfare programs.? What a crappy choice. Shame on McDonald's. The lady could have been given a raise every now and again just due to her loyalty to her job. With the billions in profits McDonald's made last year, they could and should have have offered her a raise in pay instead. McDonalds's should be made to pay more in taxes because their low paid workers have to be subsidized with tax payer dollars.”

“Loyalty raises?...What a concept. If I just stay here long enough, I will get paid more...Cool. No matter that the business could grab any teenager off the street to do the job I have decided to stay at forever without promoting..........And then. I will throw in a couple of kids to really make them feel bad, that should be good for another raise. I get it, it is not my skills, it is my bad lifestyle that gets me more money. Great.”

“Rwitchwoman9: you are an idiot to make a comment such as that one. on occasion children do deserve punishment for not obeying their parents & teachers. A time out works for some children but not all. There are kids in our society today that will only respond to some type of physical punishment As a child, I and my siblings got spanked with a belt from my parents when we did not stop doing the naughty things we were told to stop doing. I don't think that type of punishment could be considered violent. I don't like violence. Your remark was very violent.”

Rwitchwoman9 on Sep 20, 2013 at 16:05:27

“Really...I never got spanked when I was a kid my father was 6'5" talll and a cop and always said you get better with education...so we always talked....he never talked to me as a little kid always as an adult....I would get time outs, or my favorite toy taken away, but never hit....I feel sorry for you, that your parents felt they had to beat you with a belt!...No wonder you think it's ok to hit a child...:(”

“I am not LESS interested in women's health .Young healthy women do not need a lot of heath care. What's wrong with teaching young women some moral ethics when it comes to having sex? Having babies they can't afford to take care of is not the taxpayers responsibility. If they learn some morals, focus on their education, they won't be having sex or babies so early in life . They will have no health problems associated with not having babies.Your attitude is the reason we are in so much trouble today.”

“Romney has to prove to the folks that he actually likes them and cares about them and their struggles with: $4 a gal gas, high food prices, high taxes.

“No one needs PP for health care. Low income women already have free health care from the fed gov with medicaid. This is just a double dipping organization taking our tax dollars for performing MORE ABORTIONS than breast health mamograms.In this article, they talk a lot about young women and breast care health. IMO,this much health care for young women is more fraud than anything else. Yes, they do some healht care, but NOT mostly abortions.There is no need for young women to need that many breast examinations. The funding is not broken down between "health care" and abortions. Young women should not be getting their basic trainning on sexual health from PP. That is the parents job. Young women should not be getting pregnant and then need health care from PP.There are plenty of doctors offices for that. They need to abstain from having sex thus preventing the need for abortions from getting pregnant.What we need is more emphasis on poor young women getting an education and staying away from sex.”

SusanElizabeth1949 on Feb 3, 2012 at 10:32:30

“A great many of the 'working poor' make either slightly too much to get any MedicAid or enough that the co-pay is horrendous and unaffordable. PP provides services to these women and low income women who may not want to ask for welfare of any sort -- ever think of that?”

e-cat on Feb 3, 2012 at 10:07:44

“Ask Sarah, Bristol and new daughter-in-law Palin how well that abstainance thing works.

Get real, and get the facts. Planned Parenthood only provides 3% of their services for abortions.... of which is not paid for by the Government...... per the Hyde Ammendment.

http://factcheck.org/2011/04/planned-parenthood/

As for *poor women getting an education*, you do realize that the Republicans plan on gutting social services in order to pay for the 15% tax cuts to the rich. Check out the Ryan Plan, and the Romney 59-step plan.”

“You gave yourself away here: "They need to abstain from having sex thus preventing the need for abortions from getting pregnant." You are less interested in women's health care and more interested in pushing a moral agenda. Go push it elsewhere.”

mom2sons on Feb 3, 2012 at 09:53:01

“You really don't know what you are talking about. If you go to their website you will see that 97% of what they do is preventive medicine. Now, not only do white men want to have control over everyone else's bodies, so do white women huh. I recently went for a mammogram and yes I do have private insurance, and then had to have an ultrasound and nothing was found and have to go back in 6 months. PP was where I learned as a young woman to get my yearly pap, breast exam, contraceptives, etc. I will be 50 in a few days and am thankful that PP was around. Like my husband said, so heavenly highminded, but no earthly good kind of fits the bill with you people.”

Ms Disbelef on Feb 3, 2012 at 09:52:31

“Young women don't need breast exams? Susan Komen died at the age of 36. A friend of mine lost her daughter at 24. Yes, because parents are so terrific with sex education, sexually transmitted diseases among young people have exploded. Oh yes, and abstaining is also a great idea, that is why teenage pregnancies are the same for the "abstinence" trained as those who are not. Planned Parenthood also provides birth control but I'm sure you are against that too and then complain about too many abortions. Bet you even think all those pregnancies occur among just young women of color.”

“You are so wrong. Here in Arizona, Medicare/Medicaid won't cover a women unless she is old, handicapped or a juvenile. And if you think parents are going to teach about pregnancy prevention .... well the abortion rate will skyrocket. Here in rural AZ there is no gynecologist, no close doctor's office, no place for a mamogram. Planned Parenthood is within an hour, has affordable wellness exams as well as birth control. They are a godsend.”

humanitytakesavacation on Feb 3, 2012 at 09:47:51

“"....abortion services account for about 3 percent of Planned Parenthood’s activities. That’s less than cancer screening and prevention (16 percent), STD testing for both men and women (35 percent), and contraception (also 35 percent)."

pammygamherst on Feb 3, 2012 at 09:46:06

“you need to do some research; less than 2% of their funding goes towards abortions and since you do not know the mitigating circumstances of each individual case where a woman opts for an abortion you need to keep the glittering generalities to yourself....

and the abstinence program that was funded by congress did really well; teen pregnancies actually increased.

and having a gynecological checkup has absolutely NOTHING to do with being sexually active. women who cannot afford these services need an alternative so they can ensure they are healthy.

and many parents, my own included when i was a teenager, didn't mention the word S-E-X because of how they were raised and it was most uncomfortable for them. i would rather women go to PP and learn about STDs, birth control, etc. then learn 'on the fly' as it were and end up with an unplanned pregnancy.”

“I agree with most of what you say here. However, what about the concept of responsible parenting? I thought it was the parents job to teach young men and women to abstain from sex. Thus not needing pp for the purpose of educating young women about preventing pregnancy and abortions.”

“In ideal world that would happen all the time. But even if the parents are willing, it doesn't mean they have accurate information about the physiology of pregnancy and pregnancy prevention.”

NYCKitty on Feb 3, 2012 at 09:38:47

“I agree w/you and the above poster but let's be honest here. Parents are NOT teaching their kids about sex and everything that goes along with it. They're too embarrassed, in denial or just don't want to be bothered.

I know too many teenager mothers who could have prevented getting pregnant. In some neighborhoods it's NORMAL to be a first time mother by 17. Something is very wrong and it's the blame of the parents, the kids and the govt. that hands welfare out to anyone who claims they need it.”
