I will admit to having been amused at the error strewn Huffington Post piece which insisted that doubling the wages of McDonald’s workers to $15 an hour would have only a minimal effect on the price of a Big Mac or the dollar menu. Clare O’Connor here at Forbes describes what went on. My amusement isn’t at the errors in the calculation, nor in the way that it was subsequently re-reported. We all make errors at times and the important thing is what one then does: just as Mother always said, ‘fess up and try not to do it again. On which point everyone has acted excellently.
