McDonalds and Visa partnered to make this budget for fast food workers, it requires two jobs and no heat

McDonalds and Visa partnered to make this budget for fast food workers, it requires two jobs and no heat

$20 for health insurance? Where did that magic number come from? At my youngest, healthiest, single guy, most stripped down shittiest insurance ever, I was paying $100 and that was 15 years ago.

Cool. I think the CEO's of McDonalds and VISA should show leadership and try this out for a year.

Not a month, not a week, not some PR stunt. A year. And they should make sure their kids are being subjected to the same. Only fair, right?

This is the kind of shit that creates a disaffected class. A whole subset of society is being primed to rebel and the 1% either don't get it or don't care.

No food either. What is this, a budget for robots?!?

Ohhhhhhhhh....

McDonalds likely has a huge pool in their insurance.

Edit: they do have a huge pool of employees but it apparently costs significantly more than $20/month.

Wal-Mart introduces a new color for wig caps.

Wal-Mart introduces a new color for wig caps.

Found the product page on Walmart's website:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Jagazi-Natural-s-Full-Cap-Weaving-Net-Durable-Stretchy-Weaving-Net-Wea...

It seems the item has been pulled, and they have manually changed the product name. If you scroll down in the description, Walmart has provided the following disclaimer:

While we aim to provide accurate product information, it is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and others, and has not been verified by us.

The error was on the manufacturer who posted it to Walmart's product page. Walmart intervened, removed the offensive language, and barred the product from their storefront.

I wonder how many people involved in this process have no job now

Then that gets transferred to Asia, who in turn, uses an outdated British source for their translations and that is how this happens. This is slightly related to Chinglish, except instead of using the wrong word, they are using an old source and an outdated word.

Man, someone is in serious shit for that. I'll bet they typed it in as a joke and completely forgot.

KFC Germany, do you really think I'm still interested in your website after that?

Jesus Christ. Kill the executive who signed off on that.

Yes, let's play games with our customers. That'll make them like us more...

Signed off on? It was their idea in the first place.

My company has had some of our clients try to suggest we do stuff like this in the past.

Becuase it's:

Interactive Causes users to stay on the page longer

What they failed to do is listen to their marketing team telling them that it will piss off a customer and they will immediately leave the fucking stupid website.

Please tell me this is satire. Sure, it might have some effect of when they were born, but 90%+ of the effect is probably due to their age.

Yeah, how am I supposed to have a household budget when I don't have a house

people graduated from college with degrees make more money than college students working part-time at Starbucks

This is actually intentional. Southern Rail are the worst bunch of shits ever.

I've missed so many important events cuz southern rail suddenly cancel/delay all their trains at one station without saying, they're fucking shite

This is what happens when you outsource your social media to a country who doesn't share the same language. "Neil" lol yeah sure that's his name.

not for us common folk mate

BBC News jumps the gun with its reporting

BBC News jumps the gun with its reporting

That is horrible. No one decided to look into it at all?

This is shameless piggybacking on a "viral" photo, simply to get a cut of that viral ad revenue before the trend dies out. They deserve to be called out for lazily trying to repost a viral photo with absolutely no fact-checking.

Fuck this brand of "social media" news reporting.

Journalism is dead.

On the one hand, that's a dumb mistake.

On the other hand... come on. He looks like he's sleeping.

Glad to hear that.

Glad to hear that.

Woosh! Like a plane almost...

That reply bot.

Indian company so likely unfamiliar with actual sarcasm.

That reply was is so satisfying

Given the cover and one of the endorsements is:

I think it probably is. Looks hilarious.

Sun Tzu could learn a lot from this guy.

IIRC There was a crazy guy on /sub/iamverysmart that maintained (or maybe is even currently maintaining) a website on which he periodically publishes new chapters of his "sequel" to The Art of War

I wish I had a link...

united hypocrisy

united hypocrisy

that was years ago. these days its unfortunate to hear. We hate having to listen to you mishaps so from now on, we' going to force anyone we wish to get up and get out or get dragged down the aisle like a broken samsonite.

So I couldn't help but actually look at United's Contract of Carriage and the portion applicable to this mess keeps talking about "denied boarding." They do not actually define "boarding", but wouldn't it be reasonable to assume these rules about denying boarding only apply prior to them bringing you on the plane, aka what everyone in the world calls "boarding"?

If you are referring to the news that has dominated the headlines today, then no.

The company overbooked, meaning they sold more tickets than the plane could hold. There were 4 employees who were on standby and united tried to get folks to go for a voucher plus a sum of cash. They then stated that they would be randomly selecting passengers to remove. The man was a doctor who stated that he needed to get home as he had patients to treat and had paid for the ticket, so he was not moving. They then sent for LEOs to remove him by force, and in the process, yanked him from the seat, slamming his head into an armrest, and knocking him out.

The plane was full, and he was removed because they didn't have room for their standby employees.

It is a similar situation as this post only in that both have to do with overbooking on United. That's the only similarity.

Its a brand of suitcase.

Or an assertive asian male who doesnt believe the bullshit a corporation tells him, and wants to keep the flight seat he paid good money for, and and goes all "passive non violence" to make his point.

Then returns for good measure.
