let them buy each franchise and operate it and see if they can make $15 an hour. And oh yeah, have to deal with a union on top of that? Sure, why not, everybody with no skills or education who works in fast food that doesn't advance to management or ownership should absolutely be paid $15 an hour for flipping burgers and shoving bags out through Drive up windows. Heck, I think they are all way undervalued, especially when I go through the line and order a large coffee with three creams and three equals "PUT IN THE COFFEE" and end up with a large cup of black coffee and the creams and equals in a little bag they also hand me out the window. I order the cream and equal put in the coffee because I want to be able to drink it while I complete my drive to work, jerkweed, not because I want to have to figure out how to pull off the road somewhere to take the top off the cup and mix everything up. Those of them that approach their job that way, with no regard for customer service, absolutely deserve to be paid top dollar. Heck, with a little practice, they might even be capable of going to work on a farm and shoveling cowshit out of the barns. Yup, definitely, they're all so professional about their jobs they deserve to be paid at least $15 an hour. Heck, they probably should be paid $20 an hour.
oh yeah, just be prepared to spend $25 for a McDonalds lunch when their wages go up to $15. The franchise owners aren't going to do it for nothing either.
