Just to vent and im bored.. i think fast food workers should get more than just minimum wage.. i mean come on.. everyone says "if you can handle fast food, you can handle the stress and pace of any job" and im almost 100 percent in agreement. The stress i go through, the constant moving and running and confusion at times.. is crazy. Not complaining about my job (or id quit) im glad to have a job and be working. I mean everything fast food workers go through6-9 hours a day.. with one 15 min break!? My last job, i got paid minimum wage, did hardly nothing, and got an hour break. LOL. Too bad we moved. Id go back in a heart beat. So just a shout out to all those in fast food resteraunts.. good job! Some days are crazy! (especially for the pregnant and those with minor disabilities -like me) we gotta do what we gotta do to keep our bills paid.. but dang.. a dollar more an hour isnt too much to ask i dont think. LOL.

I gotta give it to ya..working fast food HAS to be rough! I worked in a gas station for 3 years, it was awful. And I got paid pretty good cause I worked there so long. Hang in there honey. They HAVE to give you a raise at some point. :)

I ran into Sheetz this morning and noticed a sign saying that they were hiring and that they start out at $8.75

 I believe that minimum wage should at least be enough to support a family on.  Sadly in this country, it's not even close.

 I'm in total agreement.  :/
