In-N-Out hikes prices thanks to California’s new $20 minimum wage


In-N-Out is raising its notoriously cheap prices to keep up with California’s new $20 minimum wage at fast food restaurants.

In Los Angeles County, a double-double burger combo at low-cost burger chains now costs $11.44, an increase of $0.76 from last year, KTLA reported.

In the very touristy Fisherman’s Wharf district of San Francisco, a double-double burger with fries and a drink costs $13.63 after taxes.

Less hungry customers should still pay $7.50 for the double patty without sides or drinks, KRON4 reported.

The same meal with a single patty isn’t much cheaper: a hamburger costs $11.03, while the cheeseburger racks up $11.57 after taxes.

Although still rising, prices are significantly cheaper just outside of San Francisco.

In Daly City, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, a double-double with fries and a drink costs $11.52, more than $2 less than at Fisherman’s Wharf.

A cheeseburger meal and a hamburger meal cost $9.54 and $8.99 after tax, respectively, in Daly City.

An In-N-Out spokesperson confirmed to KRON4 that the price increases are directly related to the $20 minimum wage increase that took effect in April.

Fast food restaurants in the Golden State have since eliminated nearly 10,000 jobs, according to the California Business and Industrial Alliance.

Rubio’s California Grill, known for its fish tacos, closed 48 of its nearly 134 locations in late May — before filing for bankruptcy in June.

Drinks at Starbucks stores in California were 50 cents more expensive after April 1, while Taco Bell raised menu prices by 3%.
