"No. I never thought I was underpaid working as a researcher."
Than you can volunteer to work for less if you don't think you're worth more. People who have families to support don't have that luxury.
I would love it if we automated jobs like fast food. I don't know why you're presenting that as some doomsday scenario. That's what we should be aiming for: automating as much mundane work as possible so humans don't have to do it.
If I hear one more person say "but my [better/more important than MacDonalds] job only pays [x], they don't deserve as much as me!" I'm going to scream. You're underpaid too dumbass! Instead of trying to keep those with a little less than you down, why not try standing up together?
Do you all understand how negotiation works? You ask for the moon than negotiate for something less. The $15/hr is a negotiation starting point. If an employer meets them in the middle in the $11.50 range that's a huge win. Whereas if they started with a "reasonable" demand they'd end up settling for something even less. I hope none of you are buying a car any time soon.
You people realize that when people make poverty wages the public makes up the difference through public assistance, right? I'd rather MacDonalds have to pay their employees more so less people be need to be on public assistance.
Of course, if you're one of those special kinds of assholes who thinks the poor should be made to suffer for their "bad choices" you probably don't want them to get any assistance or any raises.
