The catchy Subway sandwich shop jingle involving a variety of foot-long sandwiches available for $5 doesn't apply in San Francisco.

The sandwich-making chain stopped selling the five-dollar footlongs in San Francisco due to the "high cost of doing business," according to SF Weekly.

Signs posted at Subway sandwich shops sadly inform San Francisco patrons –– we hear Willie Brown is a big fan –– that "all SUBWAY Restaurants in SF County DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN Subway National $5.00 Promotions," according to the newspaper.

-snip-

Apparently, the city's new minimum wage, raised to $10.24 as of Jan. 1, make $5 footlongs an impossible business model.

When the government requires that your employer pays you more, and due to that the companies have to raise their prices, that's called "inflation." Economics 101. Obviously 99% of government officials never got that far. Meh, what does it matter, it's fo da chillins.

Get rid of the overcrowding and crazy politics and it'd be the perfect place to live.

Not like those footlongs had any decent amount of deli meat in the first place. You're basically paying $5 for a hoagie roll and a ton of veggies.

FIFY

They've been kinda light on veggies the last few times I've been to a Subway.

So the people making minimum wage can't afford to go to Subway anymore. Rich people? They don't eat that shit anyway.
Link Posted: 3/29/2012 6:05:30 AM EDT
Dunno about Subway, but McDonalds has had higher prices than their national ads in Manhattan since I was a kid.

"NO FOOT LONG? MOTHERFUCK!"

Man, who could see that coming? Going to need to raise the Min. wage to $20/hr so people can afford to eat damnit!

Shit even in New York City / Manhattan, Subways sell the $5 footlongs.
Link Posted: 3/29/2012 6:21:13 AM EDT
You'd think the biggest problem with $5 foot longs in Frisco would be making them fast enough... Half the population could probably swallow it in one bite.

Surprised SF didn't outlaw fast food joints first.

Guessing no dolla-make-me-holla menu at McD.

Politicians want to keep raising minimum wage, the company isn’t going to eat the cost… so you do.

All I can say is sucks for LA.

NYC/Manhattan does not have such a high cost for labor.

Lol last year some progressive group was bitching that city McDonald's ditched the $1 menu and the homeless couldn't afford to eat. They wanted some law to be enacted to force price controls on fast food

Growing up near there in the 1970s, it WAS a nice town. They even had a big shop downtown called the San Francisco Gun Exchange (long gone of course).

And the original Dirty Harry is still a great movie.

I wonder how many liberals would fail to realize the economic irony and actually think this is a good idea.

WA has always had a really high minimum wage but it's only 9.04 an hour

I went to Defense Language Institute for German at the old Marine Hospital on the south edge of the Presidio.
One Sat. I was wandering around town and found the SF Gun Exchange. I recall they had more Randal knives than I have ever seen in the rest of my life put together. They also had a small .22 LR Gatling gun in the window. It even had the large drum magazine on it instead of the vertical sticks. They wanted 5K for it.

Your bills in San Francisco proper would include $1000/mo for a one bedroom apartment. You'd have to work your first 100 sandwich making hours just to pay for the roof over your head.

Imagine how much cheaper it would be with less regulation and lower minimum wage.

ETA: Are the hookers still giving 5 dollar foot longs?

Most everyone making minimum wage is still living with his/her parents.
