You're always free to always eat at expensive restaurants, and get food poisoning there.

Your hypocondria is your problem.

That aint the reason for the examples of food poisoning.

They do, most obviously with restaurant chefs.

You're always free to patronise places like that.

Hardly ever.

Bullshit. Fast-food place's sell BILLIONS of dollars every year. They
certainly can afford to pay thier worker's $20 dollar's and hour and hire
teh best talent available.

Maybe if you didn't skip English you wouldn't have to work at McD's.

Fact.

Irrelevant to that point.

Yes, and that would inevitably result in significantly more
expensive fast food because that is their major cost.

> and hire teh best talent available.

Thats what restaurants do. Even you should have noticed the different price of the food in those.

If you dont like the way fast food operations operate, no one is
holding a gun to your head and forcing you to use one ever again.

If someone is doing that, call the cops.

In Austin they do. Anybody making less than $10.50/hour qualifies
for medical, dental, and $5/$10 prescriptions from the City. Look
up "Medical Assistance Program" (MAP). IIRC, you're familiar with
Austin.

As you get down towards part-time minimum wage, you get food
stamps (nationally).
