World's largest McDonald's responds to minimum wage hike
The owners of the world's largest McDonald's closed shop and will open an even larger McDonald's next door next month. It is located in Orlando, Florida, and like everything else in that town is a tourist trap.
When the new one reopens in February, it will have a feature reflecting Florida's decision to raise minimum wage to $8.22 an hour from $8.05 last year..
"The old restaurant was famously shaped like a box of french fries and didn’t just have a PlayPlace but also featured an arcade, animatronic robots, bowling and more. McDonald’s hasn’t given word yet on what attractions the new location will offer, but there will be self-serve kiosks, allowing customers to order their own food," Time magazine reported.
Self-serve kiosks are exempt from minimum wage laws.
