How to save $50K with fast food restaurants
By Kate BrumfieldThe fast food industry is struggling, but one thing that may help keep it going is cheap fast food.
A report released by Bloomberg Businessweek claims that there are $350 billion worth of fast food options in the US that are only accessible to the super rich.
Bloomberg Businessweek’s report found that fast food companies, who often are not transparent about their operations, are spending more money to get their fast food menu items to the shelves of their customers than the average American can afford.
While it may seem like fast food is only available to the wealthy, a look at the fast food sector shows how easy it is for fast food to get to stores and customers.
The food industry has been in the news recently for the deaths of two employees in the same state.
Fast food has long been an area of concern in the United States, but the recent deaths of workers and their families has brought attention to the industry.
It has also led to new regulation and increased scrutiny for fast-food operations, like the recently proposed legislation from Congress that would ban corporate and union wages from working for fast foods.
According to the report, the fast-casual industry, which is estimated to employ more than 500,000 people, has been the focus of a wide-ranging government investigation.
Fast-food chains are now paying a higher minimum wage, and workers are being forced to work more hours.
The report also revealed that fast-cooking chains like Wendy’s, Subway, Burger King and Chipotle are paying their workers below the poverty line.
While fast food businesses are under fire, their employees are not, according to the Bloomberg report.
In fact, employees are working more hours than ever before, and in some cases are working as long as 50 hours per week.
The fast food industries profit margins are also growing faster than the rest of the food industry, the report found.
