Melissa Quinn works for the Heritage Foundation and writes for its publication called “The Daily Signal.” Recently, she wrote an article about the implications of a $15 minimum wage hike for fast food customers. A Whopper Meal at Burger King would increase from $6.49 to $8.96. 10-piece Chicken McNuggets at McDonald’s would go from $4.49 to 6.20. And a Starbucks’ Grande Mocha Frappuccino would no longer be $4.56, but rather 6.29. Furthermore, she cites research that more than a third of people in businesses forced to have such a hike would end up losing their job. Melissa Quinn joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss potential ramifications of such a minimum wage increase. www.dailysignal.com

    Al Conklin / Meteorologist: Dear Dr. Newcombe, I just wanted to pass along a note of thanks for your excellent commentaries, as passed along in The Bell Ringer. They are thought provoking and I’ve shared them with many friends and family members over the years. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
