What would you like to happen during an apocalypse?
Shawndraka Mack has been working in fast food for the past 18 years. For the last six years, she’s worked for $7.60 an hour at a McDonald’s restaurant in South Carolina.
“I love what I do, but I don’t want to work for nothing,” she told Bloomberg Businessweek. “I want to work for something.”
Mack gets $345 a month in foot stamps. She lives in a mobile home about an hour away from Charleston with her fiancé and two teenagers.
She makes enough to cover her basic necessities, including gas for her commute and electricity.
What’s left over isn’t very much. Mack brings her lunch with her to work every day.
“I work at McDonald’s and I can’t afford to eat there,” she says. “It’s crazy.”
Mack is now part of an effort to bring fast food wages to a minimum $15 an hour.
"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death."
