One More Reason to Raise the Minimum Wage Nationally

In order to save a measly $2.10 an hour, a McDonalds in Oregon is outsourcing drive through order taking to North Dakota.

The restaurant on Highway 395 has outsourced one of the most important jobs at the drive-through window — order taking.

When a customer drives through, they’ll be patched through to Grand Forks, North Dakota to place the order. Why? Because the minimum wage in North Dakota is $5.15, compared to Oregon’s $7.25.

Of course, ridiculous situations like this can be avoided all together by simply increasing the minimum wage nationally like John Kerry and other Democrats have proposed. Oh yeah…I forgot…apparently since Kerry lost by a whopping 3 points everything the 56 million people who voted for him supported gets tossed out the window.

Hat tip to Fark.
