Topping the news from competitors would be this week’s announcement by McDonalds that they will increase their minimum wages in company-owned stores beginning in July, 2015.  Over the subsequent 18 months, the Golden Arches plans to bring their lowest paid corporate workers up to a minimum of $1/hour above the specific legislated minimum for each state by the end of 2016.  Additionally, they announced that beginning next month, they will test all-day breakfast at select shops in the San Diego area.
