Fox News Host Ainsley Earhardt Thinks McDonald’s Employees Make Tips
Reacting to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) calling for the federal minimum wage to be raised to $20 an hour, Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt insisted on Tuesday that minimum wage jobs were meant to give workers a start in the workforce before falsely claiming that fast-food workers supplement their incomes with tips.
“Minimum wage job is not meant to be a career—it’s meant to help you get a start,” she said. “We were in high school or college when I was waiting tables. Most of those people, at very fine restaurants, that is their career, but they make tons of money.”
She continued: “If you’re working at McDonald’s or a small little restaurant, you are right. If you are nice to the people, you make a lot of money.”
