A burger, fries and shake for $4? Its already more like $12.
Seattle seems like a lovely place for a social experiment. Let's put aside
fears of any pain or suffering people might feel and just focus on analyzing the
results to see if having government set wage limits is really a good idea.
Isn't "An economy that works for everyone" just a new wrapping on
the old Marxist theories?
My High School age grandson lives in the Seattle area, and he told me that he
thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad thing. He has seen first hand how
inflation has taken hold in Washington State vs prices he experiences here in
Texas and elsewhere.
Left to it's own, it would never increase. Someone has to take a leadership
Another "feel-good" idea that sounds good and is thus endorsed by the
low-information group. The minimum wage in Switzerland is almost $20/hour, and
that's why a small Whopper meal costs almost $15. We couldn't afford
to eat there. Part-time jobs are supposed to supply a little supplemental
income, not provide a living wage.People need to educate themselves,
using rational facts rather than emotions.
I already refuse to eat at McDonald's. If they raise the price of food
there will definitely be no way of getting me to eat there. The food quality is
terrible and the workers can't even put together your order right a lot of
the time. Fix those problems and maybe, just maybe I would consider eating there
again and paying more. Until then, forget it.
