This should be interesting. Lets see how much unemployment this creates. Min wage is going up right around 11% on July 24th. Now remember...this just doest affect businesses that are paying min wage now...it affects businesses that pay their employees just a little above min. wage because now they will have to raise wages. If someone was making 7 bucks an hour, they will now have to be paid 7.25. So in this situation a business owner now has labor costs 3.5% higher. I'm sure we will see the cost passed on to us as a consumer at all the fast food places we eat at.
