Pay fast-food workers sufficient wages
Fast-food job not a career
I am getting very tired of people whining about their low-paying jobs. [“Guest column: Show respect for fast-food workers with sufficient pay,” Opinion, August 1.]
You are responsible for your well-being. If you don’t think you’re being paid enough, get a different job. If you can’t afford your rent, move. If you can’t afford to get married, don’t. If you can’t afford to raise children, don’t have them.
Think about getting some marketable skills or more education. Fast-food restaurants are not responsible for your well-being. These jobs are meant for high-school or college students, part-time. They are not meant as a career.
