If MCDONALD’S or other large companies said we are going cut staff and use machines which are cheaper even if you had to pay someone 3 dollars an hour, when you add liabilities etc. This country will boycott them. All hell will break loose.
If they don’t oppose and possibly help float a 15 dollar an hour measure, the same people will support the machines. So cut staff by 50% or more and who cares if the minimum wage is 15. The jobs were taken by machines.
Well played corporate America!
