I back the 15.00/hr because I am already at 15.25!! I think if the rest of the countrry was at 15.00 there would be a bigger push to fix the economics of the system.

Already at $15 don't give a crap just keep raising prices, inflation will make the massive amounts of debt McDonald's has made me take on seem smaller. Menu board pricing in high cost markets make no sense as OPNAD tries to have price pointed national promotions.

Guys - if u are $15 now, after national goes 15 you will surely be 18$. Can’t raise prices forever!

OK, but keep in mind that when the $15.00 minimum wage goes through organized labor will start pushing for a $20.00 minimum.

The trouble is, the unions have been successful in changing the language. Minimum wage was once considered to be a "starting wage". Now it's supposed to be a "living wage". Minimum wage employees are now supposed to be able to buy homes, TVs, cars, and put their kids through college.

Now politicians can promise voters constant increases in the "Living Wage". We are headed into an endless cycle of government mandated wage increases which will be very inflationary. And who does inflation hurt the most? The people at the low end of the pay scale.
