Sounds like you want to be a slaveowner, not an employer. 

 

 

But many states have a minimum wage below $11 an hour, yet the nationwide starting pay at all Walmart stores is $11, so their starting pay is ABOVE the minimum wage in many states.

So once again you gave us bad/bogus info.

 

 

.

I wouldn't mind owning a few slaves.  heehee

"So once again you gave us bad/bogus info"  -  Hey, I've been accused of that before!   (but not bad/bogus in my eyes... that's what counts!)

Untrue!  Most of those establishments do indeed pay minimum wage.  Minimum wages are typically set by the State and can not fall under the Federal minimum.  For example, here in Arizona, minimum wage is $11.00 ($12.00 starting in 3 weeks from now) and McDonald's, Burger King and Walmart do start their employees at the minimum.  Same in Oregon.  Each market varies depending on labor competition.  We need more immigrants or else even these inner city markets such as Phoenix will be FORCED to increase starting wages.

Here is a mind blower why are the prices in these resturants in the philippines so close when labour so different. .   or movie in usa 10 dollars in sm same seating style 460 peso

"What the market will pay" has no relationship to what employer must pay employees

As long as people will pay $7 for a cup of coffee at Starbucks they'll keep charging it

Minimum wage here per day

First, where in the USA are you watching a first run movie for $10 in 2019, second, while it's been a few years, the places in PH that served food priced similarly to places in the US had to import the foodstuffs very carefully and specifically to ensure the quality was as expected. I could find a very nice meal for a few hundred pesos in an air conditioned place, or half or less in more open places. 

Even the higher end places, where a good steak dinner would cost the equivalent of maybe $13 were pretty nice and maybe half or less what one would pay in the USA. The last steak dinner I had here was close to $40 a head and that was a 'family' restaurant.

In a free market, they are one and the same. In a system where the prices of things are fixed by some authority, obviously market principles won't apply. But then we find employers who can't afford to hire and bakers who can't afford to bake in those systems.

Because wages are a small part of a restaurant or cinemas expenses so it doesn't make much difference.

The real consumer cost to see a movie is what the studies charge the theaters - 60% to 90% of ticket price depending on demand and length of run

Popcorn soda, candy are where they make their profit up to 85% profit margin

Well, a guy with a 1911 came in and terminated the employment of the manager about a month after I left, but when I was there the "Blue Rock" down on the beach in Subic served a really nice steak for 850p. Also the "Arizona" had a decent steak last time ai was there, similarly priced. Both (claimed they) used Aussie beef IIRC.

If you want a tender steak in Cebu, go to The New Orleans restaurant up on the fourth floor of Ayala, and order their tenderloin. You could chew it without teeth. It will cost you about $22 (1100p) with one side. Drinks are extra.

Hell, I can get a sirloin that tender here in Florida,. From Texas Roadhouse, with two sides for $11.99, or $10.99 as a Wednesday night special...
