I haven't looked into the details of the case, but how is it legal to pay someone with a debit card instead of a payroll check like every other damned place in America?

This wasn't an official McDonald's thing. Corporate locations play by the book for the most part. The franchise owners of McDonald's do whatever the hell they want, and since most people who decide to become owners of shitty franchise restaurants are horrible, shitty people, this is the result.

The owners will go on Fox and cry their fucking eyes out about Obama and how they have to be shitheels to survive. Thanks Obama!

Franchising is one of the worst business ideas since temp agencies.

She should be able to sue them, and then maybe flay their skin off with a carrot peeler. Maybe. Don't quote me.

I haven't watched this nonsensery, but I worked at a Circle K that did the exact same thing. We went from being paid through incredibly sketchy money orders to having the choice between fee-laden debit cards and direct deposit. The only way to avoid fees on the card was to withdraw ALL of the money on payday from the store's ATM. I, like any rational adult, chose direct deposit, which had not drawbacks.

God never sends bears to murder the right people.

Mcdonald's workers all just need to shave their heads and wait for the manager to talk shit about it.

He doesn't that's literally his policy for bears. He has a policy of less than %10 guilty for bear attacks.

I think he's at 8.3% right now.

In this here right to work state I find that most jobs offer a choice between these sorts of debit cards or direct deposit.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-02

And if you're working a minimum wage job, good luck meeting the minimum requirements for a checking account for said deposit without incurring loads of fees.

"Right to work" is one of the biggest lies ever perpetuated, though I haven't checked with the GOP's latest shenanigans in the last half hour.

See, the paycheck isn't technically part of the "work environment", since you get that at the end of the week, after you've left work.

If you want our commitment to employee satisfaction to extend out to paychecks, maybe you should consider sleeping in our basement and never leaving the building? With an additional 0/month debit fee for room and board, of course.

You joke about it, but give it ten years.

Nikon - 2013-07-02

Ten years, give or take a year.

frau_eva - 2013-07-02

I know someone who works as a waitress at Outback Steakhouse who has to use one of these. According to her, this is the only option they give her(she's also the sort of person who would most definitely have a bank account already). I didn't need much of a reason to not go back to chain restaurants, but hearing that this tends to be prevalent there...

Oscar Wildcat - 2013-07-02

Not to put my dick in the punchbowl, but if someone doesn't have a bank account (direct deposit) how are you supposed to issue them their pay? A check was the traditional method, but good luck getting anyone to cash such an instrument today without a whooping fee at the very least. Hence these stupid debit cards. At the end of the day, it's the banks who are punishing you with all the fees because they will not cash checks, even when drawn from their own bank accounts, unless you have an account with them.

memedumpster - 2013-07-02

If the business can't figure out a way to use banks to not fuck its employees, it should fail. Fail gloriously under a mountain of lawsuits, random burning down of property, and God sent bears.

memedumpster - 2013-07-02

Of course, I've worked for points (never EVER fucking do that NEVER), so I am really too stupid to talk.

Oscar Wildcat - 2013-07-02

I suppose some collateral damage from the bears would be acceptable under the circumstances.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-07-02

If it's a payroll check from a major company (let's say McDonald's), then the risk should be fucking minimal.
