If I were still in the work force (I’ve been retired for almost 3 years now) I’d have some concerns about a minimum wage increase!
If I were working in a grocery store and I was making (lets just say) $12.50 an hour, the idea of having a minimum raise increased to $15.00 an hour would be quite threatening. I don’t think it would matter whether it was a mom and pop neighborhood store or a national chain, I’d fear for keeping my job.
It is very possible I’d be reduced to part-time hours………which at $15 an hour may keep me close to what I was making at full time. Would they, the store want to do that, get less production for the same dollars? Maybe for awhile, and then the inevitable happens, I am released……..now I have no income. Or, when the minimum of $15 hour goes into effect…
