Mickey D's Outsources Oregon Drive-Thru Orders... To North Dakota

KIRO-TV - The restaurant on Highway 395 has outsourced one of the most important jobs at the drive-through window -- order taking. When a customer drives through, they'll be patched through to Grand Forks, North Dakota to place the order. Why? Because the minimum wage in North Dakota is $5.15, compared to Oregon's $7.25. Tim Nesbit is head of Oregon AFL CIO. He says this undercuts Oregon's minimum wage by more than $2 an hour. A McDonald's media relations person in Illinois, where the corporate headquarters is based, never returned a phone call to the AP.
