Living Wage? No Problem!
It took about three years, but McDonald's has figured out how to deal with living wage laws. Look ma! No employees!
Living wage laws, which force fast food restaurants to pay burger flippers- I don't know, like $50,000 a year - will increase unemployment. But human ingenuity (which also goes by the name of capitalism) can often do an end run around dumb legislation.
Way to go, McDonald's!
I'll eat at McDonald's after I get done with the bucket o' chicken I got at KFC after they gave the finger to PETA.
Then - stomach full and contented - I will quietly die of heart disease.
