Fast food workers refuse to recognnize the inevitable
Meet Adrianna Alvarez, another disgruntled fast-food worker who feels entitled to far more than the minimum wage she currently enjoys being paid. She says that their demands for a $15/hour wage is "just the beginning" and that they'll demand far more in the future.
I'd like to point out to Miss Alvarez that the housekeeping staff at the robotics plant where her inevitable replacements are being made probably get paid pretty well. Maybe she should go ahead and put in her application now to avoid the rush when all FF joints move to robotics and workers like her find themselves out on the streets.
It's just a shame for her, and no doubt her parents who had higher hopes for her future, that her lifelong career goals culminated with----poorly preparing burgers, carelessly wrapping them up, and tossing them in bags for people who are better than her.
Trust me, the irony of workers performing housekeeping duties for the machines that replaced them, because they demanded to be paid more than they're worth, won't be lost on me. I'll be reminding them of it constantly......that is between fits of laughter.
