Do you think fastfood companies pay there workers enough to live on.
Fast food restaurants typically pay their employees minimum wage or slightly higher. That is definitely not enough to live on. Of course, it is a great job for someone just starting to get into the work force as long as they still live with their parents or live in a college dorm. Also, some companies give their employees a free meal, which is a great benefit for an entry level position.
Once someone has worked a while at a fast food chain, that person can often go on to be a manager, which has fairly decent pay. I do know people that are managers at restaurants and make enough money to pay rent, bills, etc.
Absolutely not. It may be a good job for high school students living at home, but not for someone who has to support a family.
No they don't. But unfortunately everything is relative. If they pay their workers more, prices for the fast food will go up significantly - and they will lose business. It seems like a puzzle with no solution.
After working there, no. It's not enough to live on. You have to have two or three roommates just to afford a place to live. The cell phone bill cannot be over $50. It's best to have a car that only cost $40 to fill up. I could mostly only afford eating at Taco Bell, breadsticks at Pizza Hut, and McDonalds. Thank God I got a complementary meal with each 5 hours of work. Otherwise, food would have cost more of a fortune. If something goes wrong, you have no savings to help you with.
Generally speaking no many fast food workers do not get paid enough. But in Spain for workers of Macdonald's there is a minimum wage of around $27.00 dollars per hour.
$27.00 dollars per hour is really great but is that us dollars because that seems to be alot to me.
Yes that is United States Dollar. Or £12 pounds per her in British currency or around 10 Euros per hour.
So is the cost of living very high in Spain than it is in United States
Yes the cost of living is higher but in many parts of Spain the quality of life is said to be good. Food and Clothing and accommodation cost the most. Many of the Spanish authorities have been working to purge out low pay from Spain.

The CEO of Gravity, a credit card processing service, cuts his personal pay from a million dollars a year to give the minimum wage earners in his company $70,000 a year.

Once again there is a call to raise the minimum wage.Now....common sense and a little education will tell you that when you raise the minimum wage, prices go up to compensate. Also, you stand the chance of having a nice little spike in unemployment from the smaller businesses that can no longer...
