Stephen Colbert on McDonald’s and the minimum wage

Stephen Colbert does a brilliant take on McDonald’s new Web site that purports to help employees budget their limited income.


“McDonald’s agrees with me. Instead of raising salaries, they’re giving their workers something more valuable: a Web site.”

For example, McDonald’s budget journal assumed that employees spend zero on heating, and only $20 a month on health insurance, when McDonald’s smallest health insurance lan is nearly $60 a month. ┬áThe journal has now been updated to include some heating costs. ┬áBut, as Colbert notes, it still assumes that you have a second job.
