But to almost double it, that probably would results in quite a lot of job loss due to price increases to cover the wages etc. I do not think this stands a snow ball chance in Hades of happening.

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.

    When I worked for McDonalds, they really didn't promote crew people to management. All managers were hired from outside the company. It might be different now though.

    Come to think of it, I've never worked for a company that promoted an hourly employee to a managerial job, but I'm sure it does occasionally happen. Should happen anyway.

    It would probably have to be phased in over multiple years. I would think that a 10% increase per year until we either started seeing cost push inflation or a loss of job opportunities would be ample, at which time it should then be indexed to either inflation or the mean average wage (much like social security is).

    That would probably work without the sticker shock that would happen if it were to take place all at once. Not a bad idea.

    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.
    "Other people are getting a raise, therefore I am worth less."

    Really?

    People think this way, and it's ridiculous. It's why you can give someone the option of getting a $10,000 raise and their neighbor gets a $20,000 raise, or just a $5,000 raise for themselves, and they'll pick the latter.

    Every proposal for raising minimum wage I've seen has been exactly this. Phase in by year X.

    Hmmmm. Low wage earners, mostly young people or uneducated people don't seem to understand that while decisions might look good on the surface are in fact going to bite them in the ass. You would think after electing Obama twice they would have started figuring this out.

    So corp headquarters should subsidize wages at franchises huh. I wonder how many employees that would be and how many dollars per employee they would pay out. So much for the corp making any money at all and so much for its stock prices and so much for all the people who invested in it.

    They don't realize it yet.

    But they will.

    They could eat the cost of raising wages to $15/hour and still make billions in profit. Somehow. I think they'd live.
