Sign of the times:

According to this week’s very weak retail sales report, Food-service sales fell 1.2% in June, the largest decline since February 2008 and the year over year change in “eating out” rose by just 3.1% – the lowest annual increase since June 2010. But at least all those empty restaurant seats have a record number of waiters catering to the non-existent clients which on the surface should mean the speediest service in history.

Looks like the restaurant hiring boom may be going bust.

And none of them get more than 32 hours/week so as not to be "full time" employees eligible for health benefits. The last time I took my granddaughters (2) to McDonald's for a happy meal, it cost me over $20 with my #1 large size with no middle bun....over $20. That's why we have not been back. I can cook 12 burgers on the grill that are 1000% tastier, healthier, more convenient and costs less than $15 while never leaving home. Sayanora Mickey D's

I was shocked last time I went. It was something like $8.50 for a double QP, fries, and a drink. City prices in the suburbs or something. Still fast but it's no longer cheap.
