Fast-food employers can absorb increased costs

Starting in April, California required fast-food workers to be paid $20 an hour which Rubio’s has attributed the increased costs to its location closures.

However, a Roosevelt Institute brief found that due to increases in fast-food industry operating profits and rising markups for the past decade, affected employers can absorb the increased costs associated with the higher minimum wage without increasing prices or reducing employment.

“Markups increased most at Wendy’s and McDonald’s, by 76.2% and 40.3% respectively between 2014 and 2023. In 2023, markups were the highest among Wendy’s, where prices were 91% above marginal costs, McDonald’s (85%), and Restaurant Brands International (80%). Markups at Yum! Brands and Domino’s Pizza were 45% and 19% respectively, closest to the fast-food industry average of 27%,” said the brief.

The researchers conclude that increasing the minimum wage for California’s fast-food workers can offset the real wage decline caused by the brief inflationary period of 2022–23.
