The Burrito Chain That Pays Entry-Level Workers $10 An Hour And Wants To Pay More

By Deborah O’Rell Fast food wages and workers have been in the news recently with McDonald’s workers striking across the country for living wages. Companies often argue that wages is one of the biggest expenses and it’s easier to keep them low.

Here are a few companies who don’t follow those practices.

Boloco, a burito chain in Boston, starts workers at about $10 with many employees working up to $17 per hour. The In-N-Out burger chain starts employees at $10.50 an hour, and workers at Dicks Drive-In in Seattle start at $10. Moo Cluck Moo, a burger chain in Detroit, pays its workers $12 an hour. As consumers, we should make it a point to support these types of business practices.
