And this is all you need to read out of that
“Wage mandates are an ineffective way to reduce poverty and cause restaurant operators to make very difficult decisions to eliminate jobs, cut staff hours or increase prices.”
Richard Adams, a McDonald's franchise adviser, told Reuters $15 an hour would be an "insane increase" that would add as much as $2 to the price of menu items.
McDonald's already is no longer "cheap" for the most part...let them up their items like that and business will sink as people will seak out better food for the same money.
