"...several protests at different locations in the city, including Times Square and the Fulton Street Mall in Brooklyn. Workers from McDonald's, Burger King, and Yum Brand -run restaurants KFC and Taco Bell are expected to join. Workers say they are asking for a pay raise to $15 an hour and the right to form a union. Currently, the median pay for the nearly 50,000 fast food workers in New York City is $9 an hour..." [/quote] [b]Bussed in UNION thugs.....AGAIN.[/b] Just think....they want McDonalds to pay them $15.00 (up from the 7.50-9.50) they pay them now. Guess what happens to McDonalds food prices? ....then guess what happens to their ENTIRE business as a result when people stop buying due to high prices? F*cking Socialists. :uniontwink: [/quote] I will guess. Price is where supply and demand curves intersect. Price is a function of supply and demand. If unions drive wages up, how does that affect what someone is willing to pay for a cheeseburger or how many cheeseburgers there are to sell? It doesn't. So how will franchise owners pay higher wages? Well, money comes in to the cash register. Some goes into buying more cheeseburgers and keeping the electric on. Some goes into the owners pocket. [b]I guess any increase in cost means the owner takes less in profits.[/b] He gets less [b]free money. [/b] So long as he gets more free money than he would get in another business, he will keep his fast food restaurant running. [b] Businesses can always adapt to rising costs of materials and supplies. Their hysteria at increased labor costs is FAKE. [/b] Nine dollars an hour in NYC? Who can live on that? Homeless people? You want to eat a burger cooked by a guy sleeps in a city shelter? Or on a grate or in a condemned building? Bathing in the mens room sink? OMG. [/quote] 1) So the owner is supposed to take LESS and LESS money (profit) for his efforts starting and running that franchise? :norespect: 2) Free money??? What free money??? This ain't no government operation! :1rof1: 3) Businesses can always adapt? Hysteria is FAKE??? You are kidding right? :blink: :wtf: Have you been away on MARS for the last 4 years??? Do I REALLY need to list the all the permanently BANKRUPT and DEFUNCT companies that couldn't do what you say. Two EASY examples to prove how full of crap you are.... 1) GM (saved by Obama union thuggery) 2) Hostess END OF STORY AND LIES. Now .... :gtfor: [/quote]
