New California Fast Food Worker Law

https://www.yahoo.com/news/california-lawmakers-approve-land…
California lawmakers on Monday approved a nation-leading measure that would give more than a half-million fast food workers more power and protections, over the objections of restaurant owners who warn it would drive up consumers’ costs.

The bill will create a new 10-member Fast Food Council with equal numbers of workers’ delegates and employers’ representatives, along with two state officials, empowered to set minimum standards for wages, hours and working conditions in California.

A late amendment would cap any minimum wage increase for fast food workers at chains with more than 100 restaurants at $22 an hour next year, compared to the statewide minimum of $15.50 an hour, with cost of living increases thereafter.

California is becoming “Semi-Fascist”. You may own it, but, gov tells you what you can do with your business.

That has been the case for a long time. There are laws prohibiting production and sale of illegal products. There are laws against cheating on taxes. There are laws against using slave labor. Take a customer’s money, but refuse to deliver the product you contracted to deliver, and see what happens.

Get ready for a $10.00 Quarter Pounder.(do you want fries with that?)

While the Swiss are metric and don't have a quarter pounder, their equivalent "Big Tasty Double is
 10.40CHF or about $10.60

There is no nationwide minimum wage in Switzerland. In 2014, Swiss voters rejected a measure to 
introduce what would have been the highest minimum wage in the world – CHF 22 per hour or CHF 4,000 
a month.

So, unless we are willing to admit that Switzerland is greater than America, if we are going to make 
America great again, we should pay American workers the same as other industrialized countries.

Some examples of minimum wages in USD:

 San Marino	10.93
 Canada		10.96
 Netherlands	11.77
 Monaco		11.88
 Belgium	12.15
 Germany	12.36
 Ireland	12.42
 France		12.50
 United Kingdom	13.01
 New Zealand	15.04
 Luxembourg	15.43

So sure, not only should the burger flippers make a decent living, but so should the guys/gals who are placing the orders.
