I’m old enough to remember when Democrats promised that raising the minimum wage to $15/hr. wouldn’t result in higher prices for consumers. It looks like that idea only works out in their socialist dreams – NOT in real life. https://t.co/HYOyCS8lzi

Instead of complaining about a so-called “labor shortage,” Republicans ought to be complaining about the shortage of jobs paying a living wage. Don’t hold your breath, or your burrito. https://t.co/nzbKFreLpq

I forgot to add: •In 2017 @ChipotleTweets paid a $15M fine for wage theft of its own poverty waged employees •Since 2017 Chipotle has saved $200M due to GOP billionaire tax cut—money corporations promised would go to worker wages, but they instead pocketed. Reckless corruption

In the future, the Fed should attempt to directly target the price of burritos — stockpiling Chipotle gift cards during downtowns and then releasing them onto the market when needed to cool a hot burrito economy.

Chipotle claims it's raising prices (by 4%) because of labor costs, but its labor costs decreased by 10% in Q1 this year. More likely, Chipotle's management is trying to preserve a financial arrangement that provides for enormous executive compensation. https://t.co/gIuHAMopvk

When labor costs go up--i.e. when workers demand a livable wage--companies like Chipotle claim they are forced to "pass on" costs to the consumer. I wrote about why that narrative is nonsense. https://t.co/AOcIGGKJQ2

i love that chipotle blamed their price hikes on the $15/hr minimum wage to distract everyone from their millions of $$ in lawsuits because of the rampant food poisoning they caused with their refusal to honour food recalls or basic food safety practises

@RepJayapal

Chipotle’s CEO made $38 MILLION in 2020. A modest wage increase is not the reason that your burrito is a few cents more expensive; corporate greed is. I’ll say it again: no worker in America should make less than $15/hour. https://t.co/3U7ebOzzwn

@CharlesFLehman

Chipotle has 97,000 full-time employees (https://t.co/9sWkvsxy1m), which works out to about $600/employee from added executive compensation, or 28 cents in a typical 2,000 work year. So yeah, I think it's probably the wage bump. https://t.co/wFeYj7Rrs2

@MaxKennerly

If it wasn't for the aggressive anti-worker PR, nobody would think Chipotle's menu price increase of 4% was due to employees' wages. They'd think "this is a profitable company with a commodities price risk that is adjusting well to a near-term rise in commodities prices." https://t.co/sQkFfPszqF https://t.co/uOFXy776zr

@RoKhanna

We don't have to take business executives' spin on this. When you have a CEO that brings in more than $35 million per year, there's more than enough money to pay workers fairly. Chipotle is not raising prices because of rising wages. https://t.co/HaT5W51dnH

@adamjohnsonNYC

How is this a national news story of such significance? The sole source blaming higher wages is chipotle corporate. Of course they’re gonna blame higher wages, industry blames high wages any time they raise prices, it’s been the PR playbook since the 18th century https://t.co/jqge9rzIVq

@JamesKosur

Remember all those times we were told raising the minimum wage to $15 would cause the price of stuff like Big Macs to double or more in cost. Chipotle is raising prices by 4% so they can get to a $15 per hour starting wage for employees. 4%!!! https://t.co/y1jpUwmhG7

Chipotle has raised menu prices by about 4% to cover the cost of increased employee wages. Executives at the fast-food chain argued that prices remained reasonable and that the increase equates to “quarters and dimes that we’re layering in.” https://t.co/VuZTjuByMS

Chipotle CEO Brian Niccol raked in $38M in 2020—up from $33.5M in 2019. A 13% increase btw. But yes let's demonize the workers who make the company run for getting a 4% or $.64/hour increase.

The connection between rising wages and "costs to consumers" is always a trick of capitalist messaging. Living wages have to come at the expense of someone else. Chipotle has raised prices plenry of times w/ no wage increases - including 18', AFTER an Ecoli outbreak https://t.co/fFcpE98EZb https://t.co/uEro377KSs

Chipotle has reported that they increased menu prices 3.5% - 4% last week. I’m sure Chipotle’s prices will be dropped in the future since these price increases are merely transitory too, right? Stop the madness.

Chipotle is raising its prices by about 4%, saying it needs to do so to cover costs of paying workers a more livable wage (an average $15/hour). Chipotle's CEO made $38 million in 2020, about 2,900x more than the average Chipotle worker. (Median salary: $13,127). https://t.co/6jB5tjWllK

CEO of Chipotle Brian R. Niccol's $38 million 2020 income, roughly a 136% raise from 2019. That's also 2,898 times more that the average Chipotle employee earns. So there’s that. https://t.co/HgHF2kpqJe
