A robot dog that listens to commands and an Elmo that hugs, are among the finalists for 'Toy of the Year.' (Nov. 25)
ItsColdOutThere: This should be obvious but my guess is many people don't know this. The price for any good or service (food for example) is based off "how much does it cost to make it". So if you're paying a McDonalds worker $9-10/hr to work there the current cost for, lets say a McChicken, is roughly $1.29. Now if you force the owners of a McDonald's to give their workers $5 raises, what do you think is going to happen to the cost of that McChicken? What would happen if they got even a $1 raise company wide? How are employers going to compensate for the $5 more per employee they need to pay?
