This is going to be habit-forming. My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner this past weekend. The space is beautiful; and service was prompt and courteous. They didn't have their liquor license as of last weekend, so I can't comment on the drink menu (but I hope to see that soon!), but the food was delicious, super fresh, and well prepared. I ordered the Pad Prik Khing (spicy green bean stirfry) and my husband ordered Pad Thai - which is a great benchmark order to place when checking out a Thai restaurant. The portions were generous - I'm a fairly light eater, and only got about halfway through my food before requesting a to-go container - and the green beans and snap peas in the stirfry were bright green with the perfect amount of crunch. The sauce was spicy and complex. My husband's Pad Thai (we couldn't resist sharing) had perfectly cooked rice noodles, a wonderfully classic Pad Thai sauce, and a hearty amount of chicken. We're planning on going back tomorrow!
It's fair enough to deduce that companies such as McD's have the revenue stream to increase the minimum wage of their workers to $15 an hour. But for many small businesses who treat their employees well but can only pay a lesser wage (such as my first job out of college with a non-profit, paying about $11/hr), such an increase could lead to the end of their business. Money doesn't just magically appear in the economy... it has to come from somewhere.
While I understand the demand for higher minimum wage, nearly doubling the current minimum at once would create major compression issues within the economy - if fast food workers suddenly make $15 an hour, many jobs currently requiring a college degree would be paying equal to, or less than, your first-day-on-the-job McDonald's employee. If $15 per hour is the goal, I think it would need to be accomplished over several smaller increases over multiple years.
