McDonald's Not MY Kinda Place
Bill Maher ended his show Friday night going after GOP opposition to the minimum wage, calling them out for opposing something that would make people less dependent on government handouts. He targeted McDonald's in particular, saying “until Ronald McDonald starts paying his employees a living wage, he has to wipe that fucking smile off his face.”
On the charge minimum wages cut into profits, Maher mockingly explained, “Paying workers is one of those unfortunate expenses of running a business, like taxes or making a product.”
He asked, “When did the American dream become a pathway to indentured servitude?” and made the argument that the GOP can have a “smaller government with less handouts” or a low minimum wage, but they can’t have both.
And Maher doesn't even eat fast food anyway. He said, “If I want to talk into the face of some red-nosed clown, I’ll debate John Bohener.”
McDonalds is my kind of place! Hamburgers in your face! French fries up your nose! Pickles between your toes! And don't forget those luscious shakes! Made from polluted lakes! McDonald's is my kind of plaaaace!
