Flipping burgers for yourself is considered independence. Flipping burgers for others you don't know is considered demeaning. Flipping burgers for others you do know is considered an honor. amirite?

It's almost like context changes things. Getting paid to do something and making food for yourself are not really comparable situations. You could do this with driving cars/taxis/limos too.

This is the revised "rich or poor - we all end up in the same coffin"

Flipping burgers while a fat, sweaty man licks his lips and says "yeah, mmm, good boy" and throws $1 bills at you is... what exactly?

Conclusion: burgers control society

I think the big difference between these is the reward you get:

flipping for yourself, you're rewarded by getting to eat a burger made just the way you like it.

flipping for strangers, after an hour or so you're rewarded by getting enough money to buy maybe 3 burgers for yourself. That's demeaning because it really isn't a good reward at all.

And flipping for friends rewards you by giving something back to the people you like and potentially by being able to show off.

Yeah this is it.

Flipping for strangers...who are homeless/in need of food, would be another example of the reward determining how society percieves it.

Why is working at a restaurant demeaning?

People use "flipping burgers" as an example of a low pay entry level job that doesn't require any higher education. So, classism
