    The minimum wage there locally could be raised (over a set time period, it's seldom all at once) to something like $11.50 an hour. MAYBE.

    Economically, in terms of how QSR businesses are run, there's no way anyone can reasonably demand $15.00 per hour.

    and $11.50 will not be enough to lift these workers out of poverty.
