    The wife and me ate lunch at Golden Corral, 16 dollars for all you can eat and you have a huge choice to choose from. Lunch at McDonalds would ran me 14 dollars for two combos. McDonalds don't get my business.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Actually it shows my point quite nicely. See how the '68 wage hike precipitated an unemployment spike that ran all the way to 1983? Notice that the inflation that followed also effectively erased the gains in that time as well?

    Really effective!

It was my first managerial job, I was working as an assistant manager at McDonalds while completing my last few classes for my degree. Two weeks after I got my college diploma, I left for a higher paying job. Two years later I was making nearly double what I did at Micky D's, and working less hours doing it.
    Because you had a college degree.
    His real-life experience at McD's helped, too.

    I understand some people who had better jobs and lost them have taken jobs at McD's to try at least to do something. I'll give them credit for that. By to lump those with high school kid with little to no work experience and pay them $15 is crazy.
    It probably doesn't need to be by the same %, just the same dollar amount.

    Both. Lots of people are perfectly happy with an entry level job. We might not understand that, but I guess don't expect much out of life.

    My argument for a higher minimum wage is more on the macroeconomic level than microeconomic level. I could care less what happens to slackers, thats their problem. But if increasing the minimum wage put more people to work, due to it increasing demand, I'm all for that. there would then be more opportunities for people who do aspire to reach a higher level. If some poor people end up with a better lifestyle because of it, then great, I'm glad for them and it doesn't harm me any.

    A lot of times I get this feeling that some conservatives would prefer not to have more opportunity and more success, than to allow those below them to have a better lifestyle.

    if I was a shift supervisor making 20% more an hour than the burger flipper. I would expect to maintain that percentage.

    Imagine the prices of food at McDonalds if they did institute the $15 wage. There's just no winning this argument for both sides.

    After you left they probably promoted the next kid with seniority that could spell his own name correctly 3 out of 4 times with no more than 2 instructor assists. The fact of the matter is that while it is a great job as far as gateway jobs go, its a job that pretty much ANYONE can do...which is why it doesnt merit 15 dollars an hour.

    Probably two or three percent higher for fast food. Other products would likely drop in cost due to increases in demand, increases in competition, and economy of scale.
