Seems like the politicians know who their voter is, and they are going after them.
Basically buying votes from the working poor.
When I was out of college, I worked a bank and made 12 bucks an hour. Didn’t get a raise for five years.
I know people still there who make less than $15.
So, will all the shitty office employees quit to go and work at a fast food job?
They actually might do better, some of the large fast food companies may offer a better deal on Health Insurance than a small office/company. So they would make more and pay less for Healthcare.
Its absolute bullshit.
I know tons of people in WNY who make under 15 bucks an hour.
I think that the market demand should drive salary rates, not a government regulation.
When they start pushing $15 per hour, employees will start cutting peoples hours in half, and doing other things to game the system.
Finally, I had McDonalds for the first time in at least a year yesterday. Ordered a premium chicken wrap. Tasted terrible, strange dressing, almost rotten smelling. Threw the whole thing in the garbage and ate peanuts at my desk for lunch.
I do not see how businesses like this do not die.
Down here in Austin, the chain places have a tough time. The local restaurants are so good, and the local chains are so good.
There was one Arby’s near my house, it closed. There is like one burger king near my house, it is empty. McDonalds is still everywhere, but they are getting killed.
There are so many fresh salad, wrap places around I have no idea why anyone eats at a chain.
I also ate at a Chipolte for the first time down here in Texas. Place was a dump, dirty bathroom, not good food. Dirty tables everywhere. I will never go back to that.
