Default McDonald's workers in Denmark make 20 am hour but big Mac price nearly same

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/d...180300622.html

They make over 20 dollars an hour in Unionized McDonald's jobs yet the big mac there is only 35 cents more... And its better quality as well.


They also get paid sick leave and over time.

Quote:
"The average full-time equivalent McDonald’s employee in Denmark makes about $45,000 a year in total compensation. Forty-five thousand dollars! Even after high Danish taxes, that average worker will take home some $28,000 a year, roughly double what a full-time American McDonald’s worker will. To add insult to injury, the Dane gets at least five weeks of paid vacation while the American is lucky to get off (unpaid, of course) when her daughter is home sick with the flu. And so at the Aalborg McDonald’s, for instance, a Big Mac extra value meal costs 58 kroner, or $10.25, while the Dollar Menu is the 10 kroner menu, which means it’s the dollar-seventy-seven menu here. In Denmark, taxes are included in list prices, unlike in the US, so backing out the 25 percent VAT gives us $8.20 for a Big Mac meal and $1.41 for the “dollar” menu. That compares to $6 and $1 in Seattle "

Unions are corrupt and greedy. Corporations should be left unchallenged since they make the best decisions for their employees.

They make an average of 28000 thousand after taxes which is double what most American McDonald's workers get before taxes... Plus all of those taxes give the people of Denmark free health care, excellent public transportation, free college etc.

Sorry, but you don't deserve $20/hour to work at McDonalds. If they start paying those people ma xi mum wages for minimum effort they would have to start paying caregivers appropriate wages.

McDonald's makes billion and billion a year, but because they don't pay their employees enough the employees get public assistance like welfare... So in other words the tax payers pay instead of McDonald's.... Hmmm let McDonald's spend the billions they make or make the tax payers pay the McDonald's employees because McDonald's doesn't want to pay them enough.

This type of mentality is why most American workers., not just min wage ones, are grossly underpaid and have no benefits. This applies to the middle class as well.

The government, who pays funds most of the group homes I have worked in, makes BILLIONS, but caregivers still get minimum wage.

If McDonald's wants to pay their employees more I'm all for it.

But for their employees to complain that they don't get paid enough is ludicrous. YOU DON'T DO SH1T! YOU AREN'T REQUIRED TO HAVE A HS DIPLOMA TO WORK THERE!

My point is, there are many other workers out there who actually DESERVE and WARRANT a pay raise. If you want a good job you have to work hard and get one. Not take a horrible job, and then demand more money. That's not the way it works.

Sadly in America nowadays it's "every man for himself". People don't realize they are part of society, too busy fighting among themselves on racial or social issues while the guys up top just laugh and watch the wealth/income inequality grow.

That's the way it works in Europe and their work culture and happiness is way better than ours.

The government needs to pay more to the group home workers then. Same thing applies there.

The economy isn't a magical machine with great jobs every where. Naturally many people will have to do the lower jobs that you seem to look down on. The economy can't exist of only doctors and Lawyers. There aren't enough high jobs to go around.

Who cares if you don't need a HS diploma. What benefit does keeping that extra money in McDonald's bank account give to society? Nothing at all it only makes the tax payers pay the McDonald's workers. Everyone should have a living wage.

If it were really "every man for himself" here in America, then there would be no welfare, we wouldn't be giving illegal aliens drivers licenses and better rights than legal citizens, there would be no assistance, I wouldn't be paying for everyone elses mistakes and laziness.

Sadly, America's being destroyed by the liberal agenda

Spot on. Most Americans have been raised to blindly worship the billionaires and corporations for some reason even though the billionaires and corporations rape them as well as the rest of us.
