McDonald’s has given up lobbying against a minimum wage increase. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I explore the pros and cons of raising the minimum wage, how robots and automation factor in and the effect on the fast food industry in this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show.” I also make comparisons to the retail sector and how the future of work for the retail industry might adapt. All courtesy of ClickIQ, the automated job advertising platform you should be using; at least in my humble opinion. 😉
