It Turns Out In-N-Out Managers Make More Money Than Most Pharmacists And Lawyers

So do we drop out of college and move to California orrrrr..?

According to The California SunIn-N-Out restaurant managers now make more than $160,000 on average. If you're like me and re-thinking everything you thought you knew about fast food work, you are not going crazy. It's still true that fast food employees are notoriusly underpaid; it's just the In-N-Out pays more than triple the industry average. 

"In-N-Out is just eons above everybody else," Saru Jayaraman, who leads the Food Labor Research Center at U.C. Berkeley, told the California Sun. "On wages and benefits, they really are the best large chain."

So, what's the catch? In-N-Out, being the fair, wholesome company that they are, will only hire from within. That means every single manager at In-N-Out started from the bottom either stocking, on the clean-up crew, or taking orders at the counter.

 

Now, before you go feeling too bad for them, we should probably mention that associates get a pretty decent starting salary at $13 an hour, which is $2 more than California's minimum wage. Not to mention the 401(k) plans, paid vacation, and health, dental, and vision plans. You go, In-N-Out!

"Paying their associates well was just one way to help maintain that focus, and those beliefs remain firmly in place with us today."  In-N-Out's Vice President of Operations Denny Warwick said In an email to the Sun.

Now, if only they'll spread the love and open some goddamn stores on the east coast or the midwest.

Gee, all this nice stuff for workers: treating them like humans, paying them a living wage, retirement plans, health plans, advancement from within...and yet, they still make lots of money for themselves and their shareholders.

Suck on that, Republicans.

This is how capitalism SHOULD work.

As a former employee there’s one thing worth mentioning. My good friend was totally set on that career path until he had some personal problems and was let go. Then he had to get a job with another restaurant that didn’t pay nearly as much. He pretty much had to completely re-evaluate his entire career choice/field and start all over again with only a fast food job experience on his resume. It was a difficult time for him to say the least.

“Suck on that, Republicans”

Umm... In-N-Out is a privately owned, Christian company that donates money to the Republican Party. Lmao, they even print Bible verses on all of the hamburger rapers and cups. It’s the greedy Liberals who ruin Capitalism, not Republicans.

Only if your mind permanently resides in the gutter. "In-N-Out" refers to the fact that all the original restaurants were drive-thru only. It's only in recent years that any of them even have tables, let alone an indoor dining room.
