Headso: Mentioning that people who are paid better make better employees is insipid logic? are you from the bizarro world where you are actually telling me that it is common sense?


Who the fark truly decides "Yeah, Taco Bell.  That's where I want to work!"?  You can pay $20/hr there and you'll still get idiots.  Because only idiots do that kind of work.

In'N'Out does well because they have strict, strict controls, and they pay their managers well.  And the manager's supervisors are also paid well, and they make sure that the managers are doing their jobs.

I live in probably the only place in NA where you can work in a gas station and make $15/hr.  And you know what?  They still have total morons manning the tills.

Shazam999: Using that insipid logic, CEOs should be the smartest farking people on the planet.


Look at the logic used about CEO pay packages.  This argument is used every day.

I'm fairly certain Taco Bells are manned only by coloured people such as wetbacks.

Really?  Did you just fall off a turnip truck?

You want a high paying job RIGHT NOW?  Come up here and work on a drilling rig.  You will make over $100K within six months.  Yet the retention rate is awful, with most people quitting on their own after two weeks.

So yeah, you tell me how much they need to pay.

I dunno, man. The last couple of years the fast food workers around here have started looking rather white and middle-aged.

Sagus: Nobody forced him to take the job.


That argument is bullshiat.
Nobody forced *anyone* to take that job or any other.
If you pay shiat for a shiat job, the only people that will bother even applying for your shiat job are shiat employees.  This is reality.  If you don't want shiat employees, you have to pay more than shiat to get them.  Every employer knows this.  Taco Bell knows this.  They have decided that they having shiat employees is ok, since is saves them money.

That, and even a good employee eventually becomes a shiat employee once the see being a good worker gets them no further than being a shiat one. The same folks that spouted off "you get what you pay for" when we were kids buying cheap shiat with our allowance are the same people that look at you like you're stupid because you won't bust ass for 8 bucks an hour. When your day's pay amounts to a handful of burrito supremes, you're not going to work hard for it.

That's an extremely dangerous job with long hours and back-breaking labor.  If they want people to stay, they really do have to pay ridiculous amounts to make it worth it.  And even then the work is so demanding people can't handle it even with the golden paydays.
What does this prove?

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: Oh, and by the way, we won't have you slackers  sitting at any time while you're on the clock. On your feet, peons! Put in a good day's work, everything done? Too bad, grab a broom and pretend to work solely for my benefit! If you aren't busy, you better look it, even if I'm the only one watching.

Jobs are everywhere! Why aren't you kids taking them!?


I believe the term my manager used was "If there's time to lean, there's time to clean!"

Yeah, but you're talking to a guy that once got fired for not looking busy.

You want me to come in, on a Saturday, for a 10-hour shift with no breaks because I'm the only one here, and then demand I pretend to do things I did yesterday  when I was supposed to be doing them?

"You make a lot more than I do, you want someone to fantasize about work that doesn't exist, that's on you."

If I did my job the way it was supposed to be done, there isn't anything for me to do but wait until I'm needed.

I hated that farking job anyway.

I was watching something about rig workers just the other day. The hours are long, you're away from your family in most cases, you sleep in bunks with other smelly men (and women), run the risk of being maimed or otherwise seriously injured almost constantly... it's kind of like being a pirate back in the day, without the benefit of all the treasure you can carry.

That being said, if it weren't for my family, I'd do it.

oldfarthenry: At least consumers were grossed out BEFORE eating the "food" - and the explosive diarrhea that quickly follows.


I've never gotten the squits from Taco Bell. I mean, chicken, soy, and flour -- not exactly gut-busters. It's actually pretty bland. I think the only time I've ever gotten projectile sharts from Mexican food was in Mexico, but that was my fault because I bought a home-made popsicle from a paletero off the streets. I couldn't scuba dive for 2 days.

Well, I could have, but the mess coming out the back of my wetsuit would've clouded up the Gulf of California.

Diogenes: unyon: I didn't find the photo nearly as offensive as what they fill the tacos with and pass off as beef.

Again, integrity.  Labeling not-beef as beef doesn't strike me as strongly integrity-oriented.


Y'all know there was recently a big lawsuit about that, and the filling is, actually, nerly 100% beef, + seasonings?

Not that I care that much, but it irritates me to see people be snarky when they are actually just uninformed and/or stupid.

After all this talk about licking tacos, now I know what the slogan "Think Outside The Box" really meant.

I remember 25+ years ago we stopped off at a Taco Hell outside of O'Hare shuttling cars to the east coast. I got outvoted on the food call. The place had one Caucasian {the manager}  & the rest were Mexicans. I still remember the manager railing on poor Taco Ernie for his lackluster taco making skills. "No Ernie, first the meat, then the cheese!" I had 3 tacos and I felt like I swallowed a bunch of barbed wire by the time we hit Gary Indiana.

Walker: "You need to hire people who hold as much integrity for your brand as you do,"

Good luck getting those kind of people when you only pay minimum wage.
These days you're lucky if your fast food employees even speak English. Most of them in the DC area don't.


Welcome to Maddonna, can I take your odor.
