McDonald's is convincing customers to pay more as the fast-food giant ditches its Dollar Menu roots and raises prices-----


https://www.businessinsider.com/mcdonald...nds-2019-4




SMALLER portions, BIGGER price, LOW wages, NO union representation..........GREED is GOOD FREE MARKETS WALL-STREET CAPITALISM!
This is not a bad thing overall. The Lemur-like physique cannot be maintained while enjoying the McDonald's dollar menu. Nobody likes a fat lemur.
Price of everything is going up. It never stopped, but the process was quite steady for the last few years, now it is more apparent, because they did all the 'shrinkflation' that they could already.

Cheaper ingredients have already been substituted in, as well.

Who really bears the cost of inflation? Who ever is not able to demand a raise, or ask for higher prices from their customers.
ONE HUNDRED BILLIONAIRE Jeff Bezos CLEARLY a McGREEDY!




"The retail giant, run by the world's richest man, was criticized earlier this year after revealing its workers' median pay was $28,446."------

yep it will all trickle down and if those peasants don't travel, practice no hobbies, eat only beans and rice, and save every penny then maybe when they are 70 they will have a bit of FINANCIAL FREEDOM from wage-SLAVERY......IF their health holds up and they don't end up DESTITUTE because a bit of bad luck Wink

LEMURS are a NATURAL trim-fit not a FIRST WORLD vanity REPULSIVELY RIPPED composition

in fact Lemurs can even be a svelt skinny-fat structure which is a smart and handsome evolutionary design of intelligent survival composition which provides fatty fuel for the active life-style Tongue

Sort of ugly seeing where things are headed. Maybe capitalism isn't so perfect either.

There are no central banks in capitalism. Sure, we had robber barons in the late 19th century, but that could have been solved with justice. The things that they did, that were against the law (monopolies) should have been punished. A central bank was not the solution.

We need to get rid of central banks, have the same rules for everybody, and enforcement the same for everybody, and some limited reforms. Not revolution/Communism or more laws (because there are enough laws, they just aren't enforced against multimillionaires and billionaires).
just had MCD today

5 dollards for 2 legit entrees

10 pc nuggets, Big Mac, Quarter pounder or Fish Filet

I would say that's pretty cheap

MCD has improved big time over the last few years though. they had to though... since they could no longer compete with fast casual chains like five guys or in n out

"have the same rules for everybody, and enforcement the same for everybody"-------


that will never happen for the same reasons you mentioned about the "rubber barrons and 'should have'..."


should have just becomes more should. There is always going to be corruption so it becomes a question of which system/rulership is going to drop you the biggest crumbs for your ROI

and they know drinks and fries will be added to that order which is a very smart deception for a McGREEDY WINTongue
yeah but 2.50 for an entree.. that is pretty cheap

I just don't trust fast food to be real quality food anymore. After finding out how much excess crap they put in meat sometimes, I don't even want to trust them anymore.
yeah but your avg. restaurant is also using the same cheap meat, it just doesn't look as bad

if you go through a restaurant wholesale catalog it is SHOCKING how cheap meat is.

like 5 dollars for like 100 chicken wings

I don't know how we can say "that will never happen" in terms of justice.

Instead shouldn't we be saying "How do we make it happen?"

IMO having law enforcement that only know how to stop petty crime, like shoplifting, is the problem. They know how stop shoplifting, but stealing billions, via sophisticated white collar crime is beyond them?
