Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. ilhan omar (D-MN), who, when she is not bashing Israel and demanding the defunding of Homeland Security, is standing up for McDonald’s workers – who, apparently are superhuman.
Why would I say this? Read her quote, which she provided during a Thursday session of the House Education and Labor Committee, and you’ll have your answer:
“So the median pay for a McDonald’s worker was $7,000 in 2017. And that is the pay gap between the CEO who is making $21.8 to the $7,000 that a worker who has put in 40 hours a day gets paid. And to me that just morally does not sit well.”
How dare McDonald’s squeeze 40 hours of work out of their employees. That’s 1 2/3 hours of work each hour. Those workers must be superhuman.
By the way, assuming McDonald’s employees earn the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour (which, of course, is not true), to receive $7000 a year would mean they work, on average, about 18.5 hours a week.
In the wonderful world of ilhan omar, that is less than one-half a day on the job. Evidently the other 6 1/2 days are free time.
But if they worked just one full 40 hour day at minimum wage each week, McDonald’s employees would earn $290 dollars a week. That is $15,080 a year, with 6 days off every week.
And if they worked five days a week? $75,400 a year.
I award ilhan omar Quote Of The Day “honors” for showing us her latest version of the New Math.
Now, if she would only show us at least a slight amount of intelligence….
