It saved me money.
I wont wait on the ridiculous lines at fast food places.
The 15 minimum has been a great thing to me.
Next up: Making it illegal to fire marginal workers and spread their work among the more productive.
It’s not that high yet Upstate, but Upstate is suffering even worse than NYC for the same reason.
Funny you should mention that. Albany finished their legislative session screwing with other labor laws, too.
God help employers.
This was designed to hurt the elderly economically. Like Chicago, New York want the middle class gone. Then they can claim there are only the wealthy and the poor so we need communism.
Saved you money? Then you haven’t seen price increases at fast food places?
Doesn’t really affect me, at least when I go out to eat. A couple of months ago, I was in California, and I simply no longer tip in places with a $15 minimum wage, since the tip is now built into the price.
So when I totaled up the bills I had and compared them to several years ago, before this crap started (and when I did tip), the prices came out about the same.
Basically a push for me, at least for those type of places - obviously other joints, like McDonald’s (as if I would ever go there) or department stores, never had tipping, but then they’re costs are much less driven by labor.
“It saved me money. I wont wait on the ridiculous lines at fast food places. The 15 minimum has been a great thing to me.”
Actually, that has been one of the benefits of the $15 minimum - the much shorter lines for fast food, due to so many customers now being priced out.
And that will probably be the case for another few years - but after that, the spare capital of these chains will start running out, and probably half of them will close. At that point - guess what, the lines will be back!
If one must set minimum pay for NYC wouldn’t it be more like $40 an hour? What can you do in NYC on 15? Someone get DB on the phone and freed up the billion dollars his wife has stashed.
$7.12 for a McD’s “Big Breakfast” and medium coffee; power was out at home or I would have eaten there ...
The increase in the minimum wage cause the price of the hamburgers at these fast food places to go Skyrocket so he doesn’t go there
Never hear the media upset about rising costs to consumers when it's their policies, but when Trump has tariffs is 24/7 sky is falling because of price increases "passed on to the consumer". The Left's hypocrisy makes them look foolish, facts don't matter, to them a lie is OK if it's for their cause.
With few exceptions, the crap they serve at fast food places isnt food... its filler.
Yep, total trash at McDonald’s. Don’t know how anyone could step in to one of those horrific places, much less eat there.
As it is, I’m about to step into something simmering under the radar, but will soon be the biggest health-related story in our lifetimes, that being the destruction that carbs are doing to humans.
Ask the owner of the place where AOC used to work.
Thanks! Just starting now, on my “About” page.
