Fast food is now in the government regulation headlights and they are going to follow manufacturing off shore.

Fast food CEO: How govt regulation is driving us aboard

"It's difficult to open in the U.S., but we love the U.S. and continue to fight the good fight to open restaurants and create jobs," Puzder said. "It's just that the government is making it hard for us to build those restaurants."

Over the last three years, Hardee's and Carl's Jr. opened more restaurants internationally than in their own backyards—a first, he added. CKE now operates restaurants in 30 foreign countries.

On a percentage basis, the growth rate is striking. During this period, the company increased its restaurant count domestically by 2 percent. Meanwhile international locations jumped by 53 percent as CKE filled in "white space" or areas where it currently doesn't have restaurants.

Easier to open in Siberia than California

"Under the current U.S. business climate, regulatory and tax restrictions tend to curb otherwise dynamic entrepreneurial energy," Puzder said. "We'd love to see more growth in domestic markets. Unfortunately, it's easier for our franchisees to open a restaurant in Siberia than in California."

This isn't surprising, obviously the US would be a far more saturated market for domestic fast food chains. They are just following the same playbook McDonalds, KFC, etc. have already run.

If the want to poison Chinese people that is for China to worry about...you got to love it when a billion dollar company cries about how hard life is in the U.S. but a worker wants a decent wage he is a god damned communist.

McDonald's is the worlds largest toy distributor, worlds largest land holding corp.
I can see why the other fat food chains are trying to mirror McD's success.
Not fast food, but fat food.

Not a surprise. They don't want to pay livable wages and that's what its coming to soon. People know its the correct thing to do next we need to ban these companies from going overseas completely. They can not be allowed to escape the US for somewhere they can pay literal slave wages to people and make their huge salaries while leaving workers in the US behind because they demanded a living wage.

Interesting that several European nations recently made it considerably more difficult for Americans to become residents.

Of rats and sinking ships?

Why not? I wouldn't choose NZ although its a beautiful place. Any place I move would have to allow freedom of speech so the shuts down a lot of Europe. Would love to travel to all countries though...well most anyways...not really interested in most of Africa or Asia although there are certain places would like to go.

Are Icelanders required to engage in sex with the PM?

Sex is not a big issue in Iceland. Pretty much any sort one might imagine provided nobody is injured or put at risk. Marriage, too, is not a big issue though it is popular.

The climate separates the inventive and industrious from the leeches so common to Scandinavian/Socialist societies so the leftward leaning does not much get in the way of progress. Religion IS big in Iceland but these days (in contrast with not all that many generations ago) it is not coerced.

It's by no means a paradise but it's hard enough to live there that the wuss element so at home in Obamerica might arrive but quickly leave.

I posted that because the Nazi made a big deal about the PM being gay. As if that somehow affects life in Iceland.
