Obama, Biden Hit Up Shake Shack For Lunch

Posted: Updated:

With National Burger Month in full swing, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden got their fix for lunch on Friday.

The White House duo grabbed a meal at Shake Shack in Washington's Dupont Circle neighborhood. Per a pool report, Obama ordered a burger and fries and Biden ordered a cheeseburger, fries and a black-and-white milkshake.

A March ThinkProgress report revealed the burger company pays above-average wages, with a starting salary of $10 an hour in New York, and $9.50 an hour elsewhere, with benefits.

According to a separate pool report, Obama and Biden were meeting with four workers from D.C.'s 1st Street NE reconstruction project in NoMa, which is one of the city's fastest gentrifying neighborhoods.
