Taxpayers Subsidizing McDonald’s

One of every four workers in America are eligible for some sort of public assistance due to the low wages they are paid.

This is a sobering indictment of an economy in which the very, very, very few take so much while the vast majority get so little. Nevertheless, among fast-food workers, whose pay is even less, 52% of workers receive public assistance.

This means that taxpayers are subsidizing McDonald’s when they choose to pay less-than-livable wages. McDonald’s workers are eligible for public assistance — Food Stamps, Medicaid, WIC, Section 8, Public Housing, EITC — because they are NOT paid a living wage.

Taxpayer’s thus contribute $ 1.2 BILLION a year to McDonald’s.

Hey, McD, WE DESERVE A BREAK TODAY!
