Random Thought: America Needs a Raise

While reading an article about Burger King’s new healthier French fries the following line caught my attention.

Burger King has a bunch of challenges. The typical American consumer isn’t getting much of a raise, so the capacity of core consumers to eat out more isn’t rising.

It’s just not fast food that’s being affected by so few pay raises. News from the Wal-Mart front carries the same message. Same store sales are stagnant.
