Default Oregon McDonald's Calling Drive Thru Orders To North Dakota

Restaurant Appears To Be "Outsaucing" Customers Drive-Thru Meals

HERMISTON, Ore. --


The McDonald's restaurant in Hermiston, Oregon appears to be "outsaucing" customers drive-thru meals.

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 AFLCIO. 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.

Good ol' capitalism. Too bad there's nothing better.

It's what the retards in this state get for continously voting to raise the minimum wage.

ahh to good, I hate dealing with those tech support guys. Not only is the audio signal unclear since they probably skimp on teh bandwidth feeding all the calls to India, but 1/2 the time their english is ab F-en joke.I'm still curious when they will to realize that V and B are pronounced differently.

I heard about McDonald's "testing" this out in Chicago area about 2 years ago. At the time it struck me as genius. In non-rush hours, one employee at the call center could probably support 3 or 4 McDonalds. Throw in some voice-over-IP to keep the telco cost down, and they are saving big bucks.

They can't even get my order right when I order in the first window 20 feet away, how do they expect to make it right from a different state?
