Raising the wage to $15.00 per hour would be very good for a handful of workers and would mean pink slips for the rest. If I have to pay workers $15 per hour, I'm going to hitch my wagon to my best horses only. Work them long and hard and let the dead weight go.

Wow. should take all of 45 minutes to train new people to do those jobs...
this is what determines level of pay.
fast food jobs are not meant to be living wage jobs.
If your employees only have 45 min of food safety training, then i think you will have a lot more to worry about than hiring/training staff.

Salt, sugar, and food coloring have no political party. Just don't expect the 'food', to do a body good.

Geez folks! Back off cuz new cell phones,face beads,dope,and tatoos are expensive, not to mention the acne treatments. But they do save on the dental care costs.

The people up front and at the drive-thru would be replaced by automated touchscreens and payment systems like you see at Schnucks. They'd screw themselves out of an easy job.

if you think 16yr olds in fast food get more than a single copied page and 15 minutes on hygene and food handling you are sadly deluded.

That's pretty serious.

Our neighbor's teen age son works at a fast food joint, and he thinks it is funny the Government wants people to pay someone $15. an hour to do tha work, since you can train a monkey to do it in an hour. And it will only take that long if the monkey doesn't understand English/.

see, we can all tell this is a bullshit story, as the gov't has nothing to do with this...

you are even too stupid to lie properly.

you are too stupid to have one of those minimum wage jobs, this is why you are on the public dole.

If they get $15 an hour you know those $2.00 burgers will sky rocket to $8.00 a burger and that fountain soda you get will be $3.00 for a small and NOR refillable.
