Joan Walsh's fantasy world

Joan Walsh of Salon lives in a fantasy world where McDonald's will have to raise wages *and* where we can have mass immigration of low-skilled labor.

It doesn't work that way.

In "Poverty nation: How America created a low-wage work swamp" ( ) she complains about the titular subject, all without mentioning the role of immigration. Her fantasy world won't let her mention that.

There's a reason why McDonald's is a strong supporter of immigration reform, and it isn't because they're nice guys. It's because they know that more lower-skilled workers means lower wage costs for them. It's a simple matter of supply and demand: more workers means lower wages.

Here are some questions for her.
