Hamburger Flipper VS The Military

military VS fastfood

Another e-mail I thought I’d share, very informative…….

“Hamburgers or Minimum Wage For those fast food employees striking for $15 an hour, let’s do some math.

At $15 an hour Johnny Fry-Boy would make $31,200 annually.

An E1 (Private) in the military makes $18,378.

An E5 (Sergeant) with 8 years of service only makes $35,067 annually.

So you’re telling me, Sally McBurgerflipper, that you deserve as much as those kids getting shot at, deploying for months in hostile environments, and putting their collective asses on the line every day protecting your unskilled butt!?

Here’s the deal, Baconator, you are working in a job designed for a kid in high school who is learning how to work and earning enough for gas, and hanging out with their equally goofy high school pals. If you have chosen this as your life long profession, you have failed.If you don’t want minimum wage, don’t have minimum skills.”

— If you can read this, thank a teacher. If it’s in English, thank a Veteran.

I find this interesting and mostly true….what do you think?
