Chipotle raises menu prices to combat higher worker wages
Fast-food chain offering $200 employee referral bonuses

The fast-food chain announced in May that it would increase worker pay to an average of $15 per hour.

Chipotle is also offering a $200 employee referral bonus.
The company’s price hikes come as global food prices are on the rise.
