The Fight for $15 Continues

Aljazeera America reports that McDonald’s issued an SEC report claiming that its sales may suffer because of “campaigns by labor organizations and activists” to raise the minimum wage.  This is the message the corporation sent to shareholders via the SEC report.  Aljazeera quotes an industry spokesperson who says that a raise to the minimum wage would have little to no impact on McDonald’s stock price.  It would have a big impact on workers’ lives.  $15 per hour would have a bigger impact.  We need a living wage, not a minimum wage.
