Take note Connecticut supporters of the $15 minimum wage, McDonald’s has unveiled an automated Big Mac machine in Boston. The debut of the machine came just as the Massachusetts legislature was debating a bill to raise the minimum wage to $15 in that state.
Similar legislation has been introduced in the Connecticut General Assembly, but opponents of the bill have threatened to pursue more automated machines, if such a measure is passed. In the case of McDonald’s, it’s not waiting for a decision by the commonwealth. In a sense, McDonald’s is already having it, it’s way.
