Race to the bottom

I’ve seen plenty of arguments pro and con about the impact of a single state increasing its minimum wage (as Illinois did). It’s not clear from the evidence that it has a huge impact.
But new technologies appear to be allowing corporations to change the dynamic.
The McDonald’s restaurant in Hermiston, Oregon is outsourcing customers drive-thru meals to North Dakota.
I wonder when McDonald’s finally outsources this task overseas at a buck an hour.
