How will the recent wage increase impact your company's profitability?
Recently, Seattle, WA voted to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr from $9.37/hr, the highest in the U.S. This occurrence has begun taking place across the country causing a major impact on business expenses which in turn increases consumer costs.
