    You are free to pay your employees whatever you wish, as long as it is at least minimum wage. If you feel they deserve more, go for it.

    Oh, sure; that's exactly what I said.

    No, the point was, they choose where to spend their money, and it's not on having a large menu.

    Yup. Get yourself one of those millions of unfilled, good paying jobs.

    Careful what you wish for.

    "Engineer" is an $8/hr job on the global market.

    And how do you propose to change that fact?

    In and Out and McDonald's both got their start in the 1940s, and today In and Out has 291 restaurants worldwide compared to McDonald's 34,000.

    McDonald's employs roughly 100 times as many people as does In and Out..

    Five Guys Burgers&Fires started in 1986 with roughly the same quality model as In and Out, but paid minimum wage to start, and now has 1000+ locations nationwide.

    In and Out probably has better employee retention than McDonald's and Five Guys, but is that really that good of a thing for the average In and Out employee?

    Not sure how having a simpler menu equates to paying MUCH more than the competition.

    Does signage cost that much? Is overhead dramatically increased because you have a couple different sauces or keep some eggrolls in the freezer?

    It's a trade-off of costs.

    Yes. As well as labor, not least because the larger variety of food requires either more people to prep it or a longer time to do it in.

    What does the competence of a worker to perform their job well have to do with use or misuse or abuse of a firearm that you encouraged someone to bring into your workplace?

    In N Out is apparently $10.50 - still not a living wage... Keep going... If you are only concerned that they pay more then minimum.. Walmart does - so nothing more for you to complain about.
