10 Companies With The Least Valuable Workers

10 Companies With The Least Valuable Workers

Commented Jun 4, 2014 at 10:47:41 in Business

“Then how could record profits be claimed every year and outrageous bonuses be handed out ? Somebody ain't trickling down.”

“Ok, let's see of I can explain things to you.

The parent company does not pay the kid working at McDonald's.

They are paid by the person who OWNS THE FRANCHISE.

The average fast food franchise has yearly revenues of $2 million per year.

Their wage costs average 32.5%, or $650k per year. And their profit margin averages 11.5%, or $230k per year.

Now, can you explain how they can afford to pay more than double in wages, without having profits that can cover those increases?”

“They'd disagree with anything that had to do with helping their own employees except hook them up with Fed, assistance.”

“You do realize that the parent company has nothing to do with what the franchise owner pays their employees, right?

Based on what the average fast food franchise makes in gross revenues each year, and their wage costs, they could not afford these wage increases without massive price increases.”

“Every business would help their own employees with Fed assistance. Franchise owners don't make as much as you think”
