Maher on subsidizing McDonald's
Regressives hate handouts to the poor but love them for the rich. McDonald's median wage is $8 something, not enough to live on. Consequently these workers need public assistance to eat, see a doctor and pay the rent. And the taxpayer is left with the bill to subsidize a company that makes $billions in profits and can afford to pay their workers a living wage and still make healthy profits. But that's the thing, they are not healthy and do not want a society where everyone benefits. They are greedy bastards that like indentured servitude just fine, adding insult to injury by having the rest of us pay for their corporate welfare.
