Should You Leave a Stable Job to Start Your Own Company?

Creating a company from the ground up while generating a successful revenue steam is the essence of the American Dream; but if this were an easy task, there would be a flood of employees quitting their “nine-to-fives” to found startups.

The autonomy that comes along with building a business around personal goals, talents and interests is compelling for many workers who are fed up with their daily grind. On the other hand, leaving a stable employment situation can be stressful — and it’s a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly, even if you’re not entirely satisfied with one or more of the aspects of your current job.

As an experienced entrepreneur, I’ve learned a few pointers along the way that may help others looking to take the leap. Below are a few considerations to take into account when making the decision to start your own company.

This J.C. Penney Worker Was Fired For Telling The Truth About Its ‘Fake’ Prices

J.C. Penney is going to war against a former employee who outed the department store for its questionable discounting practices.

The department store was drastically hiking prices on items, cutting them back and then advertising huge “discounts,” the former employee, Bob Blatchford, told the Today show last July. In one case, a “rack of $7 shorts became $14, and then they were 50 percent off,” a separate J.C. Penney worker told the Today show.

“I saw a lot of pricing teams going through the store, raising the prices, mostly doubling — towels and clothing,” Blatchford told NBC’s Jeff Rossen. “Then they would go on sale, and they wouldn’t always go on sale for 50 percent off. Not only was it a fake sale, but they were actually paying more than they would have been previously.”

McDonald’s workers struggling to get by on poverty wages should apply for food stamps and Medicaid.

That’s the advice one activist McDonald’s worker received when she called the company’s “McResource Line,” a service provided to McDonald’s workers who need help with issues like child and health care.

“You can ask about things like food pantries. Are you on SNAP? SNAP is Supplemental Nutritional Assistance [Program] — food stamps … You would most likely be eligible for SNAP benefits,” a McResource representative told 27-year-old Nancy Salgado, who works at a Chicago McDonald’s. “Did you try and get on Medicaid? Medicaid is a federal program. It’s health coverage for low income or no income adults — and children.”

Look, there are lots of things to love about the South. It’s clean and quiet. There’s delicious food, good people and often amazing weather. But that’s exactly why it makes us so sad to think about all the ways in which the region is struggling today.

!!!!!9Maps1In the map above, red shading indicates a poverty rates between 17.9 and 22.8 percent. Orange indicates 15.9 to 17.8 percent; light orange, 12.2-15.8 percent; pale yellow, 9 to 12.1 percent. As you can see, there’s a lot of high-poverty red in the South.

Time magazine says White Castle’s small, square “sliders” are “the most influential burger of all time.”

The magazine notes the “now-iconic square patty” that debuted in 1921 in Wichita, Kan. was the first burger to spawn a fast-food empire. White Castle has been based in Columbus since 1934.

The Time story puts the White Castle burger at the top of the list of the 17 most influential burgers of all time, beating out burgers from McDonald’s and In-N-Out.

McDonald’s Can Afford To Pay More: Bloomberg View

The restaurant industry, which employs one in 10 Americans, many of them earning low wages, says it can’t afford an increase in the federal minimum wage. On closer inspection, that argument isn’t as strong as it might seem.

While President Barack Obama’s proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would increase costs for restaurants, it’s not clear how much. Labor makes up about one-third of restaurants’ total costs, but only 5 percent of restaurant workers earn the federal minimum wage, according to the National Restaurant Association. The average wage for non-supervisory restaurant workers is $9, which isn’t much below the president’s proposed level.
