Minimum Wage

Your hamburgers are too cheap.  Workers in fast-food restaurants are not paid a living wage.  The minimum wage should be increased to at least $10.  Opponents say that a higher minimum wage will result in higher priced burgers, etc.  Well, isn't that the point?

$15/hr would make a lot more sense and would allow all those workers a little breathing room. With two workers in the same family that would put them at 60K where they could build a decent life.

This would raise our hamburgers by 15 cents and our bill at Walmart up maybe 1% . We can afford it but I think it's going to take more than a one day walk out to get it
