I am retired & working a job @ $8.00/hr and started out@ $7.50. This job is NOT intended to be either full time or a "living wage job! This business & many others in this town will fold if they are required to pay those higher wages. I know the owners very well & they don't have high enough margins to survive @ the higher wage levels. The accountant has inserted the figures to show the owner what would happen. That model showed disaster looming very quickly.
