sometimes I get lazy and do the doordash, grubhub thing... after service fee, tips, tax etc a burgerking or wendys meal costs menu price $9 ends up almost 3x as much at $30

Food delivery makes more sense for larger orders but still...

$30 mcD meals but their worker still minimum wage they would have to work half a day just to be able to afford a meal... Now what did Henry Ford say about paying his workers enough to buy his companies products?

Good luck to US decoupling ... America is looking at a permanent underclass of untouchables
You can order Chinese food online.

It used to be free delivery and you only need to tip the delivery guy. Now due to the convenience of ordering from Doordash and grubhub, people get charged 15% to 20% above regular meal prices and all sort of fees.

I used to own restaurants and can say that Doordash and grubhub rip off both the customers and the restaurant owners.

I know it was popular to order food from Chinatown via wechat where I was in NYC. I was going to try didn't have a wechat account so never did. The delivery guy said they only support wechat. I wished wechat had a english language support but didnt at the time.

The article was quite good.

It lays out all the potential pitfalls of an American lead containment effort against China, and the almost certain end result.

The problem is the audience and the speaker.

Prof. Mahbubani knows he is delivering his lecture to the Americans at Fantasy Island University. Where the degrees are fake, because people gonna believe, what they wanna believe.

The good news is those credits at Fantasy Island University can be transferred over to Trump University.

Happy! Happy!

:D
