Move over Ilhan Omar: Congressional candidates debating using ASCII art
It’s annoying enough when one of “The Squad” posts something “profound” inside a teacup, but Joshua Collins, who’s running for Congress in Washington, seems to be campaigning exclusively through memes and ASCII art. Take these two examples:
) ) )
) ( ) ) )
charities shouldn't be /_
necessary because the/ |
Government should /__|
take care of all the /
things charities do/

That one earned some more ASCII art from New York congressional candidate Joey Saladino:
| FRY COOKS HAVE |

Fortunately, just plain sentences still work on Twitter.
Then choose to be a CEO.

Fry cooks also work harder than truck drivers too.
Unfortunately for fry cooks
Their's is a job you can learn in about a day. There is no shortage of fry cooks. Hence the job pays poorly. They should learn a trade
Did you think your tweet was profound or insightful? It wasn't

I'm sure the average fry cook works harder than Tom Brady as well. Does that mean the average fry cook provides more marginal value in his role than Tom Brady does in his? No.
Perhaps you should consider learning basic economics before running for congress.

Fry cooks have no idea about the complexity and risks of running a company. This is not a good comparison.
— Oscar (@RandomFLDude) October 5, 2019
CEOs have more responsibility, specialized skills, and provide far more value than a fry cook.
Hence why fry cooks can be replaced with a timer and a robot arm.

I think what you are missing is that 1. Most fry cooks would tank a company if they were the ceo. Working smarter>working harder. 2. You can work harder intellectually than someone else. You are just focused on manual labor that any able body can do.

Socialists still don't understand shit…
It's not about how hard you work, but about how easily you can be replaced.
Anyone can stand at McDonald's and make fries, not everyone has the brain and guts to do what needs to be done as a CEO…

Most fry cooks can’t do the CEOs work but a CEO could do the fry cooks work. After the business closes the fry cook goes home and leaves work there. Many CEOs are still working.

Anybody can be a fry cook. Very few could be a CEO.

Knowing some CEOs, I doubt that. They live their job. When they aren't in the office, they're at their phones. When they aren't at their phones, they're still ready to be, 24/7. Sure, they've got shitloads of money, but no time to enjoy it.

I cooked for 10 years. Now I own the restaurant. The cooking part was the easy part.

That is a really really dumb take.
— Michael (@RollCall79) October 5, 2019
The fact that nearly 77k people think this is true is mind boggling.
Then again, people like this elected AOC. Why not an economically challenged neckbeard soyboy too?
— D Wenke (@DaveWenke) October 5, 2019
I was a fry cook for 4 years and you're on autopilot 90% of the time and oh maybe an occasional grease burn. Training took maybe a week or two. These takes need to end.
— Andrew (@agoodwin_) October 4, 2019
So, go be a CEO. It must be super easy, right?
(Anyone with 5 minutes of training can be a fry cook. I know… I was one. It’s not hard work, it’s tedious and unskilled and doesn’t pay well. Which is why I worked and found a better job.)

You don’t know any CEOs do you?
— varsityredheads (@varsityredheads) October 5, 2019
I hope that’s a joke. Otherwise it may be the stupidest thing I’ve seen on Twitter, and that’s saying a lot.
CEOs work harder in ways a fry cook could never imagine or understand. Not to mention when a fry cook goes home, they leave their job at the restaurant.

I'm starting to think this is a parody account.
— Siberian Tigger (@TiggerSiberian) October 5, 2019
Considering I have done both, it's not even remotely true or equal. Its an immature way to look at a myriad of problems and boil it down to a false equivalence.
— Preston Hill (@jibannjibartik) October 5, 2019
Lol they definitely do not. Maybe you could say the manual labor , but the stress and intensity is definitely not even close. Fry cook, you clock in and clock out. You don’t clock out as a ceo. Your life is that job.
— Аngel (@Angel_the_SLoth) October 4, 2019
Respectfully disagree. Mentally, it’s no contest.
— Michael (@wongisrite) October 4, 2019
You: complains about how much power CEOs have.
Also you: Vote me into a position with lots of power.

Fry cooks don't make decisions that affect the entire company
