Right, but nobody who has household income of $70K+ is gonna waste time with crap like this. I'm pretty sure even poverty-level folks value their time more than this.@HonnyBrown wrote:
I think the household income is day job, spouse's income, etc., not just mystery shopping.
There should not be an assumption that someone making $70,000 would not do this assignment. Is there also an assumption that only someone whose salary does not afford them an Egg McMuffin, PJ's pizza or a Five Guys burger shops them? We shop for different reasons. When I started shopping, I appreciated the freedom of choice. Still do. I also welcomed the opportunity to get out of my house inhabited by teenagers, tax advantages, because I'm frugal, for the fun of it, to keep current, get out and about and interact.
The MSC is looking for a demographic. Whether we think it relevant is irrelevant.
As snotty as it sounds, someone with a household income of at least $70K per year probably isn't going to find the shop worthwhile. That's a low hourly wage and there isn't any reimbursement or other goodies that come as a reimbursed perk. I'll be interested to see if anyone takes them at the base rates and if not how high the bonuses have to get.
