But it’s not just the eatery’s prices keeping costumers home: With inflation still stinging Americans, diners who make less than $45,000 a year, historically the chain’s bread-and-butter clientele, are spending less on eating out.
And there’s only so much McDonald’s c-suite can do.
Inflation and other progressive policies are a perfect storm for higher costs.
Indeed, Cali’s boosting the minimum to $20 an hour: No more cheap fast food there!
Oh, and the left is pushing nationally for laws that treat workers at franchises as if they work for the national corporation — an upending of the business model that’ll further goose prices and potentially close hundreds of outlets.
McDonald’s is famous for the number of its managers who started off flipping burgers; destroying that ladder of success is a real blow to upward mobility in America.
Do progressives care that their policies keep hurting the very people they’re supposed to help?
