There isnt any body on GODS green earth worth $15.00 a hour to flip burgers at a fast food joint. They will put in self servings Kiosks, for people to order from. Or they will close down.

Remember where you live, that kind of thinking was rubbed into you.

Pepi does have a point, make labor too expensive and mechanization will become the solution. Any doubts about that?

Twenty years ago McDonalds CEO's compensation was about 230 times that of a full-time worker paid the federal minimum wage, the $8.75 million McDonalds CEO made last year was 580 times, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

This will absolutely be a job-killing measure. Business owners are going to have to reduce labor to stay profitable.

I read the article earlier today. I think it said it would first affect businesses with $500,000 or more in sales annually. The problem is that it doesn't take into account that that amount of sales doesn't mean that much PROFIT. What if it's paying for leased equipment, building expenses, or other costs not associated with payroll? It's too simplistic of an approach.

The larger Wall Street companies that are demonized will be able to weather this, but will make cuts where needed. There is no law yet that states how many hours they have to give each employee.

This is going to hurt the mom-and-pop businesses - the kind of businesses that make up Main Street.

Guess you should have stayed in school then :laugh:

You jealousy is pathetic, maybe these people are smarter than you, had a better education, sacrificed more, worked harder, took more risks and in some cases, just luckier than you. Just because they have more you seem to think they're evil. You say you have a house that's paid for, there are many people in this country that don't have that and might even think you don't deserve what you have, are they wrong? Is it wrong that you might have more than the homeless person holding up a piece of cardboard at an intersection? How much more do you have than them?

Showing your true colors.

What's disturbing is not the amount a worker is paid, who voluntarily applied for the job based on the agreed amount when they initially sought employment, but an outsider with no skin in the game who bitches about how a stranger spends their OWN money on their OWN business. I don't care if it's a Fortune 500 company or a mom and pop on the corner of Main and Broadway. It's none of your business.

Piss off expat.

...nuff said.
