McDonald’s Raising Wages 10% To Attract Better Workers

McDonald’s has announced that beginning July 1, it is raising employee wages at corporate-owned locations 10 percent, from an average of $9.01 per hour to an average of $9.90 per hour, which experts say will help it attract better and more sought-after employees. What do you think?
