The claim that a company like McDonald’s can’t afford to pay wages over the minimum is absolutely insulting when you compare the salary of its CEO to one of its crew members.
I worked at a McDonald’s in New York over the summer and did a little math while I was there. In 2011, former McDonald’s CEO James Skinner made $8.75 million with compensation, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. In comparison, crew members made $7.25 an hour, for about $15,000 a year, if they stayed at the job year-round.
If you take Skinner’s total salary in 2011 and assume that he worked 40-hour week, he would have made $4,200 an hour. In one hour, he made 580 times more than the average McDonald’s worker. James Skinner made $33,600 a day, which is twice the salary tht a McDonald’s crew member makes in a year of full-time work.
Looking at it another way, the average worker would have to work for almost 600 years to make the salary that Skinner made in 2011. In one year, Skinner makes more than I could make in at least six lifetimes."

In a talk at TEDxRainier, she tells the disturbing story of her relationship, correcting misconceptions many people hold about victims of domestic violence, and explaining how we can all help break the silence.

Do you want to get an Xbox One, but you feel like your significant other is more interested in boring things like knitting / line dancing / watching water boil? Don’t worry, Microsoft has got you covered! They offer a form letter that you can fill out and send to your honey / sweetie / sugar momma. You can even share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin, if you want to spread the embarrassment around!
It’s funny because women don’t play video games, and men have to deceive and cajole to get their support! Ha-ha!
As if I needed another reason to dislike Microsoft.
What raving douchery
Between feminists and MRAs, only one is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. I’ll let you guess which.
