I heard a blip on NPR about this last night and am encouraged to see this happening. it will be interesting to watch it play out. minimum_wage
Edit: the more I read about this, the more I realize it's way too little, way too late.
Edit again: I think that of all the articles I could have posted - I posted this one because it bothers me the most. I could give a crap what's best for the company, or why these tiny raises are "good for business". Sure, they make the analogy to Chipotle who tries to move workers up in their careers, but how about we care about people more than profits for once? Don't the Waltons have enough money?
