is the min wage increase having intended effect?
Advertisements [?]
I was just pondering this question because I have talked to a couple of people who work in local resturants(and make min wage).

turns out as soon as the min wage increase took effect, hours were cut and mandatory 30 minute breaks(while clocked out) were instituted. With the loss of hours , is the min wage increase really helping these people?
