    Cut staff:   Longer customer waits for food, less restroom cleaning, etc.    

    Raise food prices to customers.  

    With time bring in more automation to further reduce staff. 

    Some will go out of business.

    First dispense with imbecilic positions like clean restrooms and other moronic positions. Second make their couple of representatives to make up the lost work, for example they'll accomplish more than one work however work under just $15. Third disregard youngster summer occupations, chiefs won't consider employing imbecilic adolescents. fourth positions will be scant and in the event that you do find a new line of work it will be considerably more work than previously.

    The ones who are actually allowed to remain open will have to lay off employees.

    First eliminate dumb jobs like clean bathrooms and other dumb jobs. Second make their few employees to make up the lost work, for instance they'll do more than one job but work under only $15. Third forget about teen summer jobs, managers won't even think about hiring dumb teens. 4th jobs will be scarce and if you do get a job it will be much more work than before.

    The same changes they were going to make anyway. Automation will eliminate many jobs. They already limit hours to avoid lunch or dinner breaks and they offer no benefits. Raising the minimum wage will just raise the price of a Big Mack. Every time a minimum wage hike is proposed businesses say they will have to lay off workers but it never happens. In reality wages have seldom kept up with inflation, especially since republicans worked to cut unions membership starting with Reagan in the 80s.

    If the fed created another bubble out of a policy that cannot survive stress, the economy will crash like it did as a result of mortgage crisis.

    Don't care -

    bottom line - if you work full time, REGARDLESS of what the job is, you should come home with enough to actually survive without a struggle in that area - PERIOD

    I don't care if it's just flip burgers or wash dishes - if it's not at least enough to pay rent, food, gas/electric, car maintenance/insurance, ex. - it's not enough - THAT SIMPLE!
