As a restaurant owner operating in four states and looking to expand, I’m happy to see the minimum wage going up in 21 states to kick off the new year. I’d like to see the federal minimum wage increase also to benefit businesses and our economy nationwide.
Last spring, my business partner, Frank Uible, and I raised the minimum wage in our restaurants to $10.10 without raising prices.
Some of our employees couldn’t afford to buy the pizza they put so much effort into for our guests. That’s not right.
