Any degree worth getting can easily repay itself.
This is not always true. I graduated with a BS in CS from a decent state school, went for Database Administration. Education was thorough, covered basically everything technical for Database, Information Security, literally assembling a computer, project management, and basic programming. Graduated during a bad period for employment and have never been able to land a database job. I live in a fairly large city and barriers to gainful employment exist and are numerous.
the problem is mcdonalds are usually franchises, not corp owned. so while that establishment gets treated as big business, it in reality is a mom and pop business.
Then wouldn't franchise fees get reduced? It strikes me as a short term problem. Even if prices doubled, it ultimately becomes a minor increase in a person expenditure.
