    No it will; be forced to pay higher wages to entry level employees. The result of course is that buildings will cost more, and that triumphant burger flipping wage increaser will STILL not ever be able to afford that house they so desperately want to live in.

    Nope, they in turn to entice employees will have to raise their wage as well, and that will be passed along in pricing...So great, more economy killing measures....Don't things cost enough already?

    Think they should be paid more than the newbie who doesn't know how to sweep the floor yet?
    the fellow with time in grade, does he offer more for the employer than the new guy who just showed up? if yes, pay him more
    if no, then don't

    see how easy that was?

    Doesn't matter anyway.. Fast food is never going to up their wages above the minimum they can get away with. The skill set isn't there. Tere will always be someone like me when I was 16 that would gladly flip burgers for $7.25 an hour. All this will accomplish is the older employees with too much pride and an option to collect welfare will simply quit, and be replaced immediately by a snot nosed no nothing teenager.

    Don't like minimum wage? Go to school and learn a skill to market yourself. McDonald's is entry level, low skill required work, they can hire and train just about anyone. You don't need to know a special skill, have a focused education or certification or anything else. As such, the job would remain and be worth minimum wage at the roughly $7 rate. You shouldn't be promised a "living wage." If the reimbursement for your labor is too low then reject the job offer and go somewhere else that will pay you better. If you have to then work 50-60+ hours making minimum wage to manage your bills or find roommates and split living expenses. You shouldn't be somehow owed or expecting $15 an hour for low skill job like working as an entry level staff member at a fast food joint.

    If they protest I hope universities, trade schools, or companies wanting to train individuals on a skill show up to educate these people on opportunities to make themselves a better job candidate and market themselves as a skilled and educated worker.

    What's funny is that a first year Electrician Apprentice makes between $12-15 an hour....and a burger flipper thinks he's worth the same pay.

    it sure is nice of you to publicly announce that you refuse to accept any wage increase while the economy is down
    wouldn't want your increased wages to make goods and/or services more costly
    what a patriot. your self sacrifice so the rest of us can afford to buy more stuff
    i publicly thank you for your willingness to put your own self last out of consideration for the rest of us. what a guy!
