wagies are going through burnout, especially the youngest wagies. I've experience burnout several times in my life (3 times to be exact) but there goes a point when I got old enough to not feel it anymore even though I know I'm now well passed the burnout stage.

We are getting a mcdonalds in my town soon but they had to start pay at 23.50 because nobody (literally nobody, this is a small town of 4k people) applied to work there. They eventually got 6 applicants, 3 of which are retirees, one white kid and two native ladies. all hired on the spot.

labour market is just fucked. i need $30/hr minimum for me to feel like im not wasting my time getting out of bed and most people are thinking along similar lines in this economy.

>> No.50885062

Very few fast food places are open late nowadays. Whenever they are the wait times are too long and poor quality food due to them being understaffed isn't even worth it. Thankfully the Wawa and halal spots are still around 24/7 around here.

In Switzerland there are so many open unfilled positions, service for anything is impossible. At gas stations they ask you to fill the tank and pay yourself without human contact. In supermarkets they just put the crates there still packaged asking customers to using cutting knives to open them to get canned food etc. Restaurants are open max 3 days a week with long waiting lists for people wanting to dine out.

There are wagie jobs open for 50 bucks an hour that nobody applies to because they are dead end. African drug dealers rather deal drugs, and they even have recruitement problems - an Eritrean 23yr old drug dealer boss has put out a sign “hard working niggas wanted” next to his usual corner spot.

I talked to a man that owns 10 local McDonald's franchises yesterday. I was selling him a golf cart at his mansion. This man has more money than I could possibly imagine having ever in my life. His house makes those MTV cribs houses look like they're section 8 housing. I've really never seen anything like this.

All of the local McDonald's pay at best $12 an hour for managers. They are very short on employees and sometimes can't stay open because of lack of employees.

I meet a lot of millionaires selling these golf carts. I was willing to believe it was just a myth that rich people thought of poor people as dirt. I can say for certain that it is actually absolutely true. The rhetoric I hear from these rich people on a daily basis is utterly jaw dropping.

Rich people are indeed bad people. They don't give a fuck at all.

Impossible. A simple Big Mac meal is almost $10 already. You can still buy a 4 pack of burger meat and 8 pack of buns for like $6.
