    Even McDonald's acknowledges that their business was intended for children.
    Holding businesses that are created with the employment of kids & college students responsible for the poor choices people make in life is wrong. If you're in your mid to late 20's or higher & working for minimum wage you have no one to blame but yourself. You're poor choices should not result in a 10.00 Big Mac or 4 dollar fry.

    And in case you can't see it the sign says "committed to being America's first job"

    It doesn't say last job or career

    So, blame the employer when their costs increase causing a rise in prices? Not very smart. And if you are a good employee, your wages will increase, but understand in certain fields you will eventually top out, because they can't sustain higher wages or prices. It is your responsibility, if you want more, you have to increase your own skill set one way or another to get intoa field that sustains higher wages. If you don't, it is not the industries fault, but your own.

    So? When supply and production go up so does the final cost.
    However increasing wages like that causes everyone else'
    Dollar to be worth less.
    Can you post on the point of the thread or is that all you got?
