Minimum wage Increasing January 1st, 2016
As if Employers in California are not burdened enough already....the past 3 years has brought huge increases in healthcare costs for their employees, huge TAXES on healthcare costs for their employees....now the minimum wage is going to $10.00 per hour on January 1st, 2016.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for folks earning more money, but I beleive in making it the old fashioned way...making yourself presentable, have a great attitude with a smile on your face, honing your skills, being the best you can be to get a raise and make yourself indespensible and getting a good job that you DESERVE...leave the McDonalds to the highschool kids like it used to be.
Today, all one needs to do is "show up" to get $10.00 per hour.
Of course, those getting the $10. hr. are happy about it...especialy from the rich guy who owns the business. But he fact is,the cost and the regulations, etc. it takes to have a small business in California is at the breaking point! Most business owners are not "rich" and are stuggling to make ends meet. This ONE DOLLAR is on top of increased insurance costs, increased taxes, increased workers comp, etc. This ONE DOLLAR...on top of everything else is another political move to spread the wealth, this administration's agenda from the beginning. The hard working are paying for the "hardly working".
In the end, we ALL pay that dollar...as we all know, it gets passed on into the cost of the goods and services we need.
