Along comes Zandra Rice-Hawkins of Granite State Progress (GSP) who says… “hold my beer.”
This has got to be one of the more stupid things I’ve seen on the Twitterverse in a while. Clearly, Hawkins and her sidekick over at GSP have never worked in a restaurant or actually worked in customer service or with customers, EVER, anywhere.
As a former restaurant server and bartender, I can tell you, they DON’T want to get some crap set wages from their employers. These people make really, really good money per hour, more than any ridiculous ‘one fair wage’ would pay because they are good at what they do. And the better they are at their job, the more money they make.
Having ‘one fair wage’ would actually decrease the pay these people take home every week. Of course, then all the crappy servers would get the same pay as all the good servers.
Get it yet? It’s like the failed Socialist experiment in unions – eventually the best worker becomes no better than the worst worker. Why? Because there is literally no incentive to do better.
This isn’t going to stop any customers from being jerks. It would cause more poor customer service to be the norm; the company loses business; workers lose jobs. Not to mention, the company would probably lose business anyway after having to raise the prices of everything to pay for this mess.
It would do the left some good to actually TALK with people they pretend to represent rather than just tossing really, really bad ideas out there. You never know how many moronic Democrat legislators might believe this is a good idea.
