But what's your opinion on them? We both know they exist, what I'm asking is whether or not you agree that they should.
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:35 pm
The 'real discussion' was started by Curly, in the very first comment on this poster, but I'll entertain your little distraction for now, while you search for the 'off-shoring is good for the economy' talking points.
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:30 pm
so, in my opinion, there is no excuse not to take advantage of it.
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:29 pm
so, cranky clown, tell me what that has to do with the real discussion. The truth is that it doesn't matter whether or not I am for or against them, they are available and the poorer you are, the more that is available to you.
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:26 pm
So which is it Emma? Are you in favor of government a**istance, or against it?
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:22 pm
Once again, point out where I said that. In fact, I said just the opposite. McDonalds isn't a career employer for burger flippers. It's transitional employment.
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:19 pm
So, in fact, you'd prefer it if the majority of society didn't have the means available to them to do any better than a lifetime of asking "want fries with that?" Is that what you're saying?
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:18 pm
Once again, clown, I never said I was in favor of government grants and loans, I merely stated that they are available. Big difference.
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:17 pm
Once again, you pull a cranky, clown. I never said it had no effect. There are options available to people who want jobs, but they have to put the effort out to get them.
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:17 pm
So, you're in favor of government grants and loans now? I thought all those greedy moochers were haning out at Solyndra plotting how to abort your recoilless rifle fetuses...
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:15 pm
Yeah. Like manufacturing jobs. Which have been steadily disappearing overseas for years. Remind us again how this is having no effect on the economy?
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:14 pm
66859 refers to your bs statement in 66855
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:13 pm
Use your head clown. McDonalds is at the low end of the skill set. There are better paying jobs for people with better skill sets and government grants and loans to get that skill set.
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:12 pm
You mind pointing out where I said that? Oh, that's another one of your hallucinations isn't it?
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:12 pm
Also, employment at McDonalds qualifies as 'service industry', but you said, in comment #66836, that "...there is no reason for anyone to work at McDonalds..." So I guess what I'm asking is: why are you flip-flopping around like a fish?
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 2:09 pm
So.... that's what you're saying? That off-shoring has been good for the economy? Really Emma?
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 2:07 pm
Are you really going to sit there with that clown face on and claim that the only jobs in N.A. are manufacturing. Ever heard of service industry jobs?
crankyhead - May 23, 2014, 1:46 pm
Are you really going to sit there with a straight face and pretend like manufacturing in N.A. hasn't been completely gutted by off-shoring?
EmmaRoydes - May 23, 2014, 1:06 am
As long as Pell Grants and other government programs exist, there is no reason for anyone to work at mcdonalds. There are jobs out there, but people have to gain the proper skill sets to take advantage of them
Curlyrocks - May 22, 2014, 10:51 pm
It shouldn't be but with all the real jobs and manufacturing moving to China a lot of people have no choice.

Cannabal - October 5, 2014, 10:52 pm
Yeah, here's the thing: this system is already in place at certain gas stations. Humans still make the food. If anything, this improves productivity, efficiency, and quality, so I think $15/hour is more than capitalistically warranted in that respect.
terroraustralis - October 5, 2014, 9:52 pm
if the dems win in 2016, any hope of fixing the budget will be gone. if the republicans win, expect a civil war to occur when the welfare system is axed and tens of millions of people become destitute.
terroraustralis - October 5, 2014, 9:50 pm
i'd say the reason people arent going to go for this, is because its going to put millions of people out of a job and reignite the welfare debate. democrats will be pushing for a more generous system, while the cost to the taxpayer skyrockets.
terroraustralis - October 5, 2014, 9:44 pm
once the cashiers and cooks are replaced with machines, a**holes are going to love it, because machines dont grow pubic hair, they dont have saliva glands, and they cant intentionally f*** up an order because the customer is an a**hole.
Cannabal - October 5, 2014, 8:50 pm
People won't go for this. Because when the order turns out wrong, they won't have another human being they can berate for not making the perfect fast food burger for $1.

I never said they where the same. In fact my argument requires they be different to demonstrate the flaw in what you said. So once again you launch a reb***al to something not said, thus used another strawman.
fauxnews - February 14, 2015, 10:12 pm
Tell a college professor in front of an econ class that workers demanding higher pay in the restaurant industry is the same as shoplifters demanding equal respect and if you can survive the thunderous laughter,ask them why you are wrong.Not rocket science
calron - February 14, 2015, 10:00 pm
A slipper slope goes A could lead to B and so on to apply the judgment of something down the line to A. However I took a promise of your argument and applied it to an extreme which is a Reductio Ad Absurdum. It is a valid way to argue not a fallacy.
fauxnews - February 14, 2015, 9:55 pm
Your argument, if true, is that a slippery slope fallacy = a reasonable reb***al. Clearly legally working at a restaurant is not a***ogous to criminal enterprise. "It's not the same ballpark. It's not even the same f***ing game."-Jules, Pulp Fiction X-D

Reductio Ad Absurdum: Your argument, if true, would mean you would have no right to judge people that make a living by killing or stealing.

I mean, there is people in America working for film companies that money off a movie called "Sharknado." LMAO People who work for Fox News essentially are paid to lie for a living since they provide no useful function. Consider it welfare for the stupid.

It's classism, pure and simple. Republicans who just as easily attack Obama over where he was born (which is a coded form of racism) have this nice nifty coded form of classism.
fauxnews - February 14, 2015, 2:42 pm
Rubbish. There is a market for it, and no one has a right to judge another based upon how they make a living.You could easily make a similar argument against those who work for Budweiser or cigarette companies but this stigma against service level jobs..
Cyberhagen - February 14, 2015, 1:03 pm
Min wage has not kept up with inflation; it's just that $15 an hour is a bit much and a huge jump. But no one should aspire to work fast food for life, and expect to live off of that kind of no skill menial labor. (I used to do it when I was 16)
Cyberhagen - February 14, 2015, 1:00 pm
Interesting spin. So *not* giving a raise is *taking away* money? Also, those people should be working better jobs then, or not having kids. That said, beats them going on welfare, and they are trying, so I think a compromise is fair.

Add to that that McDondanlds use a franchise system, so the it would likely would come out of the local owner's pocket rather that corporate's pocketbook.
Cyberhagen - February 14, 2015, 1:05 pm
Agreed on that point. CEOs of the last 20 years are out of control and their ridiculously high compensations in that time are destroying the system.

Okay,"Calron"...enough absurdity for one night.I know you are itching to keep citing from that website on fallacies you came across, however "fallaciously" you are using it. A new toy can be fun,eh? But don't worry,in the spirit of the machine takeover...

And as outsourcing is possible an the lower wage, it becomes more viable at higher wages. And of course attack me personally does nothing to prove you're right or me wrong. The evidence of what I have said is all there and ridicule will not change that.

You mean people being replaced by machines in response to increased costs doesn't mean increased costs lead to people being replaced by machines? It doesn't matter if both the ups and downs are covered, the downs I said are still there.

*yawn* Another article that doesnt back your claim. The article is about BOTH sides of the debate, and it doesnt claim one side is right or wrong. You are passing off articles as proof without concern for what they say. Why? Because it looks cool? lol

Again bull. Your article said the opposite of what you contended,sans the final sentence which was an fanciful specultion."In the future, we all may be keying our orders into an iPad or some other technology." Thats your evidence? Im not too worried LMFAO

No it is basic economics, not just speculation. The rest of what you post has nothing to do with it and you ignored the second article to boot.
fauxnews - February 14, 2015, 10:23 pm
Because the only thing that came close to backing your claim in that article was the final sentence, which was speculation from a conservative. Thanx for playing though =)

Those programs and subsidies cost taxpayers about $7 billion a year, so the study led some economists to ask: cont."Why should middle-class taxpayers subsidize corporate profits?" Agreed

Ignoring the dollar menu at McDonalds - and you should if you actually care about your health - a decent burger at McDonalds is only about a dollar pricier than compared to Shake Shack http://www.fastfoodmenuprices.com I even called the Vegas store.Yup
fauxnews - February 14, 2015, 3:52 pm
Of course you paid that much. You ate at Grand Central Terminal, for Zeus sake.Ive eaten there many times:Everything is expensive there. Even the McDonald's down the street is pricey (has a value menu instead of a dollar menu & charges almost 3x as much).

PeteofSanJose - February 13, 2015, 3:04 am
I have eaten at Shake Shack at Grand Central Terminal. It was "ok", nothing to write home about. Much better than McDonals though. HOWEVER, a reg burger was about $8.00.For wife and I, lunch was $22.00 Guess they can afford to pay more
