Burger King and McDonald's Pay Fast Food Workers $20 an Hour in Denmark @alternet

Burger King and McDonald's Pay Fast Food Workers $20 an Hour in Denmark @alternet: Enough to pay their bills, save some money and even go out with friends. Why can't we do that here?

In the United States there is legislation being blocked on minimum $15 an hour wage for people who work in the fast food service industry. This is what I would call the non-tipping part of food service.

It might mean that mega-million dollar empires like McDonalds may have to pay a little more but the last time I bought something for the four of us at McDonalds it came to over $20 so with all the people who eat there raising the wage to $15 an hour shouldn't be too much of a stretch.

What do you think?

I think this should be an important topic in the nominations going on in the USA. Or am I missing something? It is about the billionaires giving something back..
