Can fast food chains  afford it?

Yes.

For example, one worker in Denmark says: ““In Denmark, McDonald’s pays me $21 an hour and respects our union, so I was surprised when I heard workers in the US had to fight so hard for just $15 and better rights,” said one Danish worker who plans to protest on May 15.” -http://consumerist.com/2014/05/07/will-fast-food-workers-around-the-world-strike-on-may-15/
