  •  My call to consumer line (1+ / 0-)

    I just called the consumer line. I spoke for five minute to a very polite person. Either she had not heard of this situation, or she was one of the best actors I have run in to in a while.

    She asked specifics, so I dug deeper and gave her the name of the VP of Operations in Omaha who had made the announcement, the the street address of the one location mentioned in the local news article linked to from this article.

    I emphasized the fact that Olive Garden and Red Lobster corporate profits dropped like a rock, 37%, last quarter, after their blathering about this.

    I pointed out that Wendy's is one of only two hamburger chains I will eat a hamburger at, because frankly, the quality of their meat and its taste is better. You could not force me to eat something like a Burger King, the very sight and smell makes me ill.

    Also, I emphasized the fact that I sincerely doubt if founder Dave Thomas would approve of this plan to reduce all workers to underpaid wage slaves with zero benefits.

    I also emphasized the fact that there are tax credits in the legislation to help cover the costs, a fact which seems to be blithely ignored by these corporations who want serfs and wage slaves, not workers who can afford to see the doctor and stay healthy.

    Feel free to call the USA Consumer Line. If you get the after hours message, just enter the six digit extension to go straight to the consumer line.
