McDonalds Is Lovin’ A New Minimum Wage

The CEO of McDonalds had refused to discuss the minimum wage, despite McDonalds being a massive corporation that will lose next to nothing by giving their employees a living wage and being at the center of the entire debate. But now, he’s opening his mouth to endorse the $10.10 minimum wage put forward by Obama.


Dear Kitten…

This ad is really cute, but they should have let a lesbian narrate it.

  1. Dammit guys I know that’s just a clever headline convention you guys have but I saw “Hannah Hart” and “married” and just had a fucking heart attack

    • “headline convention” – i like that! i’ve been calling them “mash-up headlines” because in other life, i’ll be cool enough to be a DJ.

      count your breaths! drink water! IT’S GONNA BE OK.

      • Sometimes my apparently dirty mind puzzles me… I actually read the last part of your comment as “count your BREASTS”… *sigh*

      • Lololol “headline convention” is just my nerdy journalist slip showing. (For real though, you gotta bump up the nut graf or else you’re gonna bury the lede)

  2. Why is someone awesome like Hannah having ANYTHING to do with a fat-shaming, nasty, awful person like Joan Rivers?! And why the fuck is that supposed to make us happy today?

  3. Yay for Wisconsin!!! I know its an unclear legal situation and may unfortunately be temporary if some people in this state get their way, but still it’s exciting!! I went downtown for the celebration and to watch people get married and it was really great to see.

  4. In between all the yayz of marriage in Wisconsin and Hannah Hart simply existing I just keep coming back to the fact the minimum wage will RISE(!) to $10.10 an hour (how low is it at the moment?), in Aus it’s $16.87 an hour!
