Haight McDonald's Homeless Controversy

New, 5 comments

McD%27sHomeless.jpgThe owner of the McDonald's in the Upper Haight recently got rid of the Dollar Menu; and many homeless people in the area think it's a strategy to get rid of them. The McDouble used to cost an accessible 99 cents and is now $1.49. The owner says any speculation that the price increase is directed at the homeless in the area is "absolutely false." But Nicholas Newhart, who lives on the street nearby, says he now has to go to the trash can when he's hungry. [SFGate]
