So stop working at mcdonalds and do something with your life.
Sure! I’ll just reach into my ass and pull out a job! Or, how about I go down to jobland, where jobs grow on jobbies!
Strap on your job helmet and get in the job cannon
…if everyone “stopped working at mcdonalds and did something with their life”, you do realize the entire fast food industry would collapse, right? And if we extend that premise out to other low-wage/low-prestige jobs, society itself would pretty much grind to a halt.
You love to talk shit about retail and food service workers, but who makes your burger and sells you your clothes? Go ahead. Try doing without any labor from someone employed in a low-wage/low-prestige service industry job for a few days. I’ll wait. Good luck.
NEW RULE: If you think working minimum wage jobs is “not doing something with your life” and you look down on the people working those jobs, you’re not allowed to patronize those jobs ANYMORE. No fast food for you! No retail, no coffee shops!
People criticize individuals who work in these low paying jobs, but don’t think about would you rather them be unemployed. Most of the adults with children that I know who choose to work in these jobs ARE doing something with their life… they are trying to not fall behind on bills because the job market is so saturated. It’s these people who work these shitty jobs that no one else wants to work (while riding their high horse) that caters to you and your infinite ‘I WANT IT NOW’ demands… Go on there Veruca… keep running your mouth.
