I feel like McDonald's is getting too expensive.

I don't want to use it if it's so expensive for a little burger. That was my point.

The app brings the prices down. The offers change every week. Good deals.

There can be some good offers in the app like 2$ off a 10$ purchase, 50% off a filet o fish or bogo egg mcmuffin.
but overall it is getting expensive like I had a free big mac from the monopoly game and it seemed smaller than before, there's no way I'd pay like over $5 just for that sandwich.
But I still go to Mcdonalds because I love the self checkouts and the number system they have now. Also I much prefer their coffee over Tim Hortons even tho its now $2.09 for a medium in Vancouver which seems higher than I remember.

Junior chicken is 1.99 now.

Goodbye, Mcds :(
Yeah used to be $1.39 as a "value menu" item. With a 43% increase, not so much of a value any more. Even if the US brings back a value menu, Canada always seems to get shafted with smaller sizes and higher prices

Right now, it looks like the best deal on the app is a $2 breakfast sandwich, but deals change weekly.

In the US, a junior chicken is only a McChicken and it's 1.87 USD. not worth it either
I just ate it last week

So has anyone sat down and done the math for what percentage of the total cost of a Big Mac is actually labour?
I have. Quick service restaurants will have to raise prices 7% to cover the upcoming minimum wage increase.

43% increase as reported above on the junior McChicken is a little more than 7%.

It's probably not when you consider that's 43% over ~10 years.
I worked there when it launched @ 1.39, it was 2006-7ish

I don't know how prices will change item by item but to answer your question, approximately 28% of sales is labour for the restaurant business. So whatever you buy figure that the labour cost is about 28%-30% of the total.
