$15 and hour x 15 workers = $75/hour x 8 hours/ day = $1800 labor cost x 7 days = $12600 per week
5,000 hamburgers @ $ 3.95 x7 days/ week = ( week's receipts) ----- = $19,750 per wk
gross profit $ 7,150
cout of that comes heat, light taxes, insurance, the owners pay, (if any) city licenses, and a whole bunch of other fees like cost of food he has to buy to serve.
So, as you can see. He will close his store. Can't make it. This is based on over 750 hamburgers/day
I am distressed over the city's collective obcession over weed, THC, and the obsessive focus on marijuana for medical purposes. You know and I know when (not if) it becomes legal for wider distribution, and it will, that massive amounts of money are to be made, and the elements that now flood Colorado will soon hit Tucson's front doors. I would prefer collective media in this town to just be up front with us and let it all hang out: you want it here, you can't wait, and some of you hope to cash in on what for most of us has been a life time of really rotten wages.
Colorado's wage base has always been better than ours, I know, I left here in 1990, lived there for 10 years and made far more coin than I ever did here. Legalizing pot here will change the wage profiles almost overnight. Howsomever, it should be noted that Colorado's governor has recently said it was a mistake. No further details are available.
I know Colorado, and the nails rimming the coffin are a good example for us to follow closely. We should check it out before jumping into that bed, completely.

Oh yeah, Depp, didn't recognize him without that dead chicken on his head.
Funny, McSally reminds me of another politician that made promises to get elected, got elected, then carried them out. Ticked a lot of people off. Turns out the other pol was a hero. Reagan.
'aren't you afraid that after reviewing your column in toto, that Arizona itself may be turning into one big joke? Seriously, if we are to take YOUR comments seriously, are we not to assume that Arizona has fallen down the rabbit hole? Is that not where you are leading us?
