Too often we hear negative comments indicating that the lowest form of work is flipping hamburgers at a fast-food restaurant. Some of the workers at these important places of employment are protesting in some large cities that they deserve double to what they are paid. They are out of touch with basic economics.

If they were paid double what they now make there would be serious consequences. Food and drink prices would have to be raised considerably, business would fall off, work staffs would have to be cut, along with hours, and there would be more damage to the general economy. Many seniors eat at fast-food places simply because it is more economical than trying to prepare meals for one or two people. Most are on fixed incomes. To price them out of the fast food market would be tragic.
