There seems to be a growing trend in this country where every job should pay a living wage, even though those jobs were not meant to do that from the beginning. If all jobs paid that much, they would be that much harder to get. That would hinder people breaking into the work force.

On the other hand, if the fast food companies paid the $15 dollars, would it result in a better product? It would definitely be a more expensive one. Would it make employees care more about their job if there was that much more to lose?  Where do you come down on this? Should fast food workers be paid $15 per hour?
