The New York Times reported just minutes ago that McDonald’s corporation has announced that it will raise wages at the corporate owned stores. About 90,000 workers will see their wages increase to an average of $9.90 in July. Unfortunately, this does not apply to the 750,000 workers at franchise owned stores and it is a far cry from the $15 an hour that workers have pushed for. Yet, it is evident that companies like Wal-Mart, Target and McDonalds are finally realizing that ignoring the issue of low wages does nothing for their bottom line or their reputation in the community. Keep the Fast!
