Mcdonald 2 For 5 dollars. Big Mac, Quarter Pound, Fish filet

Wendy is offering 4 for 4 Combo Deal

Burger King is offering 5 for 4 Dollars Combo Meal

Hardees is offering 4 Dollars Combo Meal

But whatever you pay, you still end up with pseudo-food from a fast food restaurant. You still lose.

This is the real capitalist. It lower prices to compete a customer? A customer always win in the end.

The ceo of Mcdonald is from UK.

Yeah, there's a reason we want to leave Wessex, and return to our rightful place in the Danelaw.

If you’ve ever been to the U.K., you might notice that the fast food restaurants over there are a little bit different, and slightly healthier than they are here. In the past, I wrote about how it’s a common practice for food companies (everyone from Betty Crocker to Pringles to Quaker Oats) to reformulate their products with safer ingredients overseas, while they continue to sell us inferior products with unhealthy ingredients here in the States. If you walk into any McDonald’s in the U.K. you’ll find organic milk available for children in their Happy Meals, and no chocolate milk. Just think about that for a minute…

McDonald’s serves organic milk to children in the U.K.? But not here in the U.S.?

I picked up a Hershey's teeny tiny carton of chocolate milkshake here in a shop the once and turned it to look at the calories and sugar content. :shock: Just one sip and I'd be on a serious sugar high and the calories equalled to a full meal. :shock:

@ Davidbugs, he can't wait to be paid $15.00 an hour non skill wage and then pay the prices as you stated Tasman.

All the clueless voters for Hillary and Bernie never took economics class, much less history lessons.

At least your paying living wages with low income level. 7.25 dollars an hour. You can't afford to rent your own place.

You are better standard of living standard than usa.

Are you voting donald trump. Donald trump want to lower mininum wages like 50 cent an hour like third world country.

Republican want to lower wages to compete third world country wages.

It never does any good to raise the minimum wage. It's almost a joke.

They usually say the minimum wage will go up slowly over the course of a few years.
That gives the employers time to restructure and revamp. In the mean time, while
the small business owner closes down and other mom and pop joints let employees
go, prices go on the rise every where.

So don't be fooled. It's one of those things that initially sound good but it always
bites you on the.....you know where, before you know it.
