FYI there is members of the Mane that have used my business so your claim of BS is completely false. Raise the minimum wage or my taxes and I will still be in business and continue to pass the increase on to the consumer.
I guarantee Houghtam’s boss knows exactly what the “cost of sale” on a box of popcorn is and what profit margin he needs to maintain to cover Houghtam’s minimum wage.
But that can't be. You should keep your price the same and just make less. It's insane to pass the cost onto the consumer. /end sarcasm font.
Btw the cost on popcorn is about 20 cents a bag from my supplier anyhow and includes only popcorn flavacol and coconut oil and not the packaging for sale.
