There is so much conversation about raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Many pros and cons and both sides have valid points. Taking hourly wage earners out of poverty and giving them a chance. I dxidn’t realize the federal minimum wage was only $7.25. For whatever reason I thought it was a couple a bucks higher. For a 40 hour week that’s $290 before taxes. $15 per hour puts someone at $600 per week before taxes. I get how tough this would make it for many small businesses. Maybe meeting somewhere in the middle. i don’t have the answer, but some folks like Cosco are answering the bell. What do you think?? Let us know.
