Average McDonald's franchise owners reportedly make $250,000 per year.
Mickey D's net earnings for the first quarter of this year were $1.27 Billion.
In 2011 McDonald's CEO was paid $8.8 million. It has been estimated that the typical McDonald's worker would have to work 550 years to make that much.
My own calculation is a mere 488 years ($8.8 million divided by $18,000 for the average NYC fast-food worker, per the first story, above.)
