Oddly enough, customers were rarely interested in my feelings.
Prager University has published a new video which is an instant classic. Haverford College student Olivia Legaspi compares her experiences as a college student to her job at McDonald’s which gave her the opportunity to attend college and explains why her job was more educational.
Legaspi suggests that when she was working at McDonald’s, there were no trigger warnings before irate customers complained to her and no safe spaces to which she could retreat.
She correctly explains that if she complained to her boss that the fast pace of her work made her uncomfortable, he would have handed her a final paycheck and showed her to the door.
She also speaks at length about the problem solving skills and self reliance she took away from her job at the restaurant and that she appreciated the opportunity to acquire those skills.
In other words, Olivia Legaspi is exactly the type of young person you would want to hire if you were an employer.
Here’s the video description from Prager University:

Which of those lessons is more important? Olivia Legaspi explains.
