I think he was suggesting that they cant dictate the wages, not the product costs. THe minimum wage is different in many of the places Mcdonalds is located in, and their wages would likely be in line with local norms.

I think the better analogy for hockey players is the 700 best lawyers or 700 best CEOs, rather than Macdonalds franchises. Sports is so different, we always tread a difficult line when trying to make comparisons with other industries
