172. It would cost what the market would bear
A crappy cheeseburger is a crappy cheeseburger no matter what the employees are making.

A better question is, what is it costing us now? I'm seeing fewer and fewer high school and college age kids working the drive through these days and more and more 30, 40 and 50 somethings working there, no doubt out of desperation because of the current job market due to outsourcing etc. People with families that work those kind of low end jobs often qualify for food stamps and other assistance. I'm not knocking them for taking it, but I have to ask, what is the lifestyle of the executive class in that biz costing my working class ass whether I buy the crappy cheeseburger or not, because I'm the one subsidizing what they are failing to provide in their payroll. God knows the big time exec class can't be put upon to pony up their fair share of taxes to pay for anything.
