  •  There were 2 McDonalds in (0+ / 0-)
    316 pairs of border counties

    somehow that doesn't ring true.

    To the bigger point of there being more disposable income available when the minimum wage is raised, this (e.g., McDonalds-type restaurants) in fact is almost exactly where one would predict it would be spent.  So why didn't employment rise?

    Well, maybe there and at Walmart.
