    I was a server for several years during college and after in my young married life. Good nights and bad nights were part of the deal. You knew it going in and I never remember hearing anyone complain about that. You usually made well over minimum wage. If someone got paid minimum wage PLUS tips, they'd be living quite nicely.

    Here in my town they are always PACKED. But I'll be damned if they don't get me ordered and served in 5 mins or less with 20+ cars in front of me. It's always kids taking orders with older adults being managers. They always are pleasant and well trained. They've got the fast food market extremely well managed and setup. Anywhere else I go is noticeably below their standard. IDK how C-f-a does it honestly. I did the fast food deal when I was a teenager, and it sucked.

    EXACTLY. There are currently MORE job openings than there are people on the unemployment roll. There is NOTHING keeping any of these people from bettering themselves and getting a higher paying job. What, you don't want to quit smoking weed? Too fucking bad, the job with the drug test pays twice what you're making washing dishes. What, you don't want to have to be at work at 7am? Too fucking bad, the day time job has full benefits. What, your a single parent with kids who are in school? Figure it out, there are lots of second and third shift jobs that could work around your schedule, and imagine this, if you'd stayed with your mate you'd have TWO parents to look after the crotch fruit.

    Decent to good servers always made more out front than I did in the back cooking - even though me doing my job well was a huge part of that. Was it unfair? Slightly. Did I bitch? Hell no, that's the game. I could make more by doing that job but then I'd have to deal with the asshole customers. I did like bartending tho. Couldn't tolerate being a server.

    The way they do it is they are very particular on who they sell a franchise to. The people working there are treated decent and have a guaranteed Sunday off. They incorporate their faith into the restaurant (and not just as a marketing ploy). There are haters and deniers out there but results show.

    I agree, and in my experience back of the house people bitch very little compared to the divas up front who are making 2-3x as much money. I think this issue is more SJW's trying to stick up for the little guy than the workers themselves calling for it. The guys in back are good people and hard workers, but they're back there by choice and they're not ones complaining about equal pay.

    As for Chick-Fil-A, we just got them up here in the last couple years, but I'm amazed every time I go there. I've never seen such happy and friendly people, I don't know if that's trained into them or what but it's weird how nice they are.
