How McDonald's feels about California

The president of McDonald's in the US has spoken out against a California bill that would give the state more control over the pay of fast food workers.

The burger chain unfairly picks on important companies, in their opinion.

Erlinger stated his support for raising the minimum wage for all employees in a statement published on the McDonald's website, provided that it is done so in a fair and reasonable manner.

Erlinger would contend that discrimination would occur if California increased fees for some restaurants while exempting others.

McDonald's comments are rare since they are a public statement about proposed legislation, which is often done covertly by lobbyists. The argumentative reaction is understandable given that

The regulation, which would have an effect on hundreds of fast-food restaurants in California, is primarily directed against the well-known burger chain.
