commented on Proof That Paying McDonald's Employees More Leads to Happier Employees
In fact, there are MANY studies that show that pay is far down on the list of predictors of workplace satisfaction. Does anyone really think making $9.19 an hour is going to make a worker significantly happier than making $7.25 -- while doing the same mind-numbing, smelly, disgusting work?
That said, I think paying $7.25 an hour is unconscionable.

Slog spent all day yesterday downplaying the chance of any vandalism or violence. So to expect an evenhanded accounting of events -- such as mentioning all the crap that was thrown at the police -- is unrealistic. Kiley et al are nothing but apologists.
