    I think McDonalds should plan their whole corporate strategy around the homeless folks in San Fran.

    Listen, it's not just the homeless who rely on these dollar menus. It's a hell of a lot cheaper to order off any dollar menu in any fast-food joint, then to go to the grocery store and purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.

    It could be worse. They could have raised the price of Wavy Lay's.

    Next thing you know, the Fornicalia legislature will try raising the CRV on pop cans because it helps the bums. :rolleyes:

    I say time for San Fran to stop the hypocrisy, evict all the corporations that waste space in downtown and turn the highrises into homeless shelters.

    McDonalds has the right to do this, but why raise the price to where you customer base can't afford it? But who really knows if the homeless people are the majority of the people buying off the dollar menu.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say they aren't.

    just saying.

    And if you look, there's no name and no 'study'. the post is attributed to 'canvas staff'... which means they sent some poor baby reporter into the partk to ask whatever homeless people are there their 'thoughts' on this subject.

    That is great idea, in theory.
    Having worked at a park where many spent most of their time, it doesn't take a genius to figure out, that a good amount of homeless people are mentally ill. Many are also Vietnam Vets who were messed up by the war. We also had many who were elderly and in wheelchairs. But I do love it when people put down homeless people, shows what kind of person they are.
