A McDonald’s Worker Must Work 4 Months to See What CEO Makes in 1 Hour


That’s working 4 months and doing overtime the whole time. How is this right?

A McDonald’s employee working overtime for nearly four months straight would make as much as the company’s former CEO earned in just 60 minutes, according to an analysis published Tuesday.

The analysis, compiled by the financial information company NerdWallet, assumes the average salary of a McDonald’s hourly worker is $7.73, based on information from self-reported salary site GlassDoor.com. Official figures on McDonald’s worker pay aren’t publicly available, but the median wage for fast-food workers overall is $8.90 per hour.

By comparison, former McDonald’s CEO James Skinner raked in $9,247 for an hour of his precious time last year, according to NerdWallet. (The analysis focuses on Skinner and not current CEO Donald Thompson because full data on the latter’s salary isn’t publicly available yet.)


I’m just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
