Hours are cut. Prices went up. Places are closing or aren't hiring as soon as the minimum wage was raised. That's not a coincidence.
Thats my point

Not talking about Seattle
The rent is the problem not the wages. And I'd like to add that this minimum wave myth has gone out of hand and I'm tired of hearing it. I don't even believe in a minimum wage... But the idea that your employees having more money somehow hurts the economy is precious. More money in your account, more money to spend. I'm pretty sure coffee isn't going to stop being sold. Its your duty as a business owner to be able to compensate those who work for you fairly. Fight thr increased rent an lease rates. Not wages. They havd to keep up with inflation and that's way worse for the economy than wages. Though I propose that only businesses with more than 800 employees be affected by minimum wage laws
