[/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. I guess any increase in cost means the owner takes less in profits. He gets less free money. So long as he gets more free money than he would get in another business, he will keep his fast food restaurant running. Businesses can always adapt to rising costs of materials and supplies. Their hysteria at increased labor costs is FAKE. 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] In your bringing up the point that supply and demand drives the market and dictates what you can charge for an item before suffering loses but you must also consider that connivance food is just that a connivance and not a necessity. If the prices on these marginal connivance food rises much more then they currently are then it would drive more people to eat at home or package meals for the road, which would be a good thing. Since our economy is not stable and those left with expendable funds allocated for such trivial convince purchases would dwindle those left frequenting these fast food establishments would be those who fall under the government dependent class using their EBT cards for burgers and fries. Your analogy of the owner pocketing less than a living wage for himself is ludicrous and I suspect the owner would rather lay off employees before going home with the dregs from the cash register. We see an ever-increasing number of fast food restaurants closing due to customers choosing other options to save money. Daily Job Cuts http://www.dailyjobcuts.com/ [/quote] Fast food wages do not affect fast food prices. Wages can double and prices will stay the same. Never do wages affect prices. But when fast food wages double, more fast food workers will be able to afford to buy a burger and a shake on their way home. Or movie tickets. Or things for the kids. And the whole economy gets better. [/quote]
