On the other hand, the original story at this link calculated its numbers assuming the salaries of management and executives including the CEO would double as well. That's absurd.
The average fast food worker median salary (2009-2011) was $18,564. McDonald's CEO salary is $8.75mil (numbers). This means that McDonald's and its CEO believe he is as valuable as 471 line employees.
Cutting his salary in half could raise the annual earnings of each of those 471 employees to over $27k/yr without raising the cost of a Big Mac a single penny.
Let's take the money from those who have it, not those who work and eat at McDonald's because they have little other choice.
