    Between McD's corporate and the franchise owners, sufficient profits exists to do just that and not raise food prices one penny. They would just be less profitable. Corporate would still be profitable to the tune of billions of dollars.

    If the workers made themselves worth twice as much, maybe I could see that, but minimum wage workers are minimum wage workers for a reason.
    Yes. Because the employer/employee relationship is not an equal one and they lack the power to obtain a better life through negotiation.

    Does every single person make precisely what they deserve?

    In every employee/employer relationship, both sides have implicitly agreed to the wages paid...

    Explicitly.

    That wasn't the question.

    You didn't offer an answer. You dodged the question.

    I will answer for you, then, since you gave permission. You aren't willing to say yes. You aren't willing to suggest that everybody is making precisely what they deserve.

    Good evening, AP.

    : You can always privately think you're worth more, but once you agree, it's a done deal, until the employer also agrees that you're worth more.

    I haven't had the TV on today, so do you know the outcome of the nationwide strike of fast food workers? My neighbor told me our local McDonalds was operating as usual, but there were no strikers in sight, either.

    No, I answered, but because you chose not to accept it, feel free to makeup one of your own. If you want to continue the discussion from this point forward, I'm available, but I will not play your game as to which answers are acceptable...

    Hey there pg. I hope you're doing well. In most instances both sides are satisfied with the agreement, but when they aren't, then they may seek alternative arrangements...

    It was a yes or no question, and you brought up something about employment contracts. Because you're not willing to say yes.
