A viral social media video about a $25 McDonald's "deal" recently sparked an online debate about California's minimum-wage increase.

A TikTok user shared a video lamenting the $25.39 price tag for a 40-piece Chicken McNugget meal deal, which also included two large orders of fries, without a drink.

Comments

  • "Remember when 40 pieces nuggets was $5 and a large drink was $1," one comment read.
  • "The managers special used to be 40 nuggets, a gallon of tea, and a LG fry for like 20 dollars SMH," another said.
  • "I spent $48 there yesterday…my jaw on the floor," a third commenter wrote.

California's Minimum Wage Increase Impact

Several California fast-food establishments, particularly pizza chains, have been laying off employees in recent months, including Pizza Hut and Round Table Pizza.

McDonald's USA stated that the FinanceBuzz report is "not an accurate representation of pricing at McDonald's restaurants" and emphasized their commitment to offering customers great value.

"20 minimum wage…..welcome to your new normal," one person said.
