Heard! Podcast – Episode 123 What might happen if we raise the minimum wage?

In a mostly symbolic gesture, the House of Representatives voted to increase the minimum wage to $15/hr in Summer 2019. If the minimum wage were to increase, how would that impact hospitality businesses? We are joined by Sandy Levine, owner of The Oakland, Chartreuse, and the upcoming Freya and Dragonfly, and Frank Lanzkron-Tamarazo, owner of Chazzano Cafe, to scratch the surface of the minimum wage debate. Is $15/hr enough? What are some unintended consequences of raising the minimum wage? We touch on a wide range of topics regarding this complicated issue.
