McDonald's investors have the only say
Leonard Pitts' column about wages for workers is absurd! I don't care if they make $7 or 70 bucks an hour, but that's up to McDonald's! They are a private company run by the people who invest in their stock. Public money, you have every right to question how it's spent, Mr. Pitts, but private money belongs to the people who invest in the company, and only they have any right to determine how that private money is spent. Maybe Mr. Pitts owns McDonald's stock?
I don't own any but since every Tom, Dick, and possibly Leonard can commit, here is my two cents worth. First, if you're going to raise wages it means there will be fewer workers. Second, when you raise or double prices there will be far fewer customers. This means the company will be worth less, much less, and its survival could be threatened. I have only worried about my finances in life. I confess I am not intelligent enough to understand or run other people's finances or other people's businesses that I don't own. Mr. Pitts from his column appears to fall into my category.
Loved Sandy Wells' story about the nurse
I got a warm glow this cloudy, dreary Monday morning when reading Sandy Wells story about the 94th birthday and life of Nurse "Good Body" Libby McGinn.
It was especially interesting to me as I am a retired RN (cadet nurse) graduated from Charleston General Hospital.
I love Libby's attitude!
