Sad. The sad truth is, of course, that the business model, that these companies are founded on, intends these jobs to be held by kids… kids eager to just get a job and some work experience. No one was supposed to have these jobs for 10 years. Unfortunately, these jobs have now become "real" work for many unable to find other work and the reality of the crap pay and work conditions have come to light.--- This author is one of those people. Two degrees (one of them from an Ivy League school) and unable to find work… now working in quick service to pay the bills. Hopefully not for long, but there it is. Frustrating though to work a 40 hour week and make less than the poverty line. (Used to make $80,000 a year)

What did you expect the "McResources" call center to do? Increase her salary and say, thanks for calling, if you need more money, just call back? Expect them to recommend she quit and find a job elsewhere? There comes a time when citizens need to be accountable for their own actions and this is one of those cases. If she doesn't like the pay, get a higher paying job with more responsibilities. It's not my fault you decided to have kids so don't use them as an excuse.
