I’m a mess
There was a study done on McDonald’s and raising the minimum wage would not raise the price of their products. Walmart could pay their employees almost 15 dollars an hour without raising prices. Costco is a grocery store that pays 11 dollars an hour and gives healthcare to its employees in need and its prices are still lower than Walmart. Its not the cost of living, its the greed of the companies. Minimum wage has not been correctly adjusted with inflation rates of the products and the dollar. If you adjust the minimum wage from 20 years ago to inflation rates today it would be about 10 dollars per hour.
