Newly face-lifted Big Ben will ring in London New Year

(Bloomberg) -- Wanted: Restaurant manager. Competitive salary: $100,000.

The six-figure sum is not being offered at a haute cuisine location with culinary accolades, but at fast-food chain Taco Bell. Amid an increasingly tough U.S. labor market, the company is betting a higher salary will help it attract workers and keep them on the team.

The Yum! Brands Inc.-owned chain will test the higher salary in select restaurants in the U.S. Midwest and Northeast, and will also try a new role for employees who want leadership experience but don’t want to be in the management position. Current salaries for general managers at company-owned Taco Bell stores are between $50,000 and $80,000, according to the company.

It’s another example of how stubbornly low unemployment is changing the face of fast food, which for decades has been seen as the quintessential low-wage job. Restaurants including Olive Garden owner Darden Restaurants Inc. and Shake Shack Inc. have recently called out labor inflation that’s hurting margins.

In November, the unemployment rate fell to 3.5%, matching the lowest since 1969, while average hourly earnings climbed and exceeded projections.

In the Habs' Room: All-Star break coming at bad time for surging Montreal .
“A rest is always good,” Carey Price says, but the Canadiens’ bye week might be coming at the worst possible time. Montreal has some momentum with four wins in their last five games after Saturday’s 5-4 shootout win over the Vegas Golden Knights at the Bell Centre. “We’re moving in the right direction and, hopefully, we get some healthy bodies back in the lIneup,” said Nick Cousins, who led the Montreal offence with his sixth and seventh goals of the season. “We have to come back and play the same way.” The Habs, who don’t practise again until next Sunday afternoon, must avoid the letdown they experienced after a shorter break around Christmas.
