Michigan minimum wage increase could hurt small businesses, says restaurant owner
Michigan small businesses preparing for required increase in wages
JW’s Food & Spirits owner Chris Weavers on why the state-mandated wage increase including for tipped workers will hurt small businesses.
As Michigan prepares to increase its minimum wage in that state, one small business is fearing the worst.
Last week, Court of Claims Judge Douglas Shapiro ruled that Michigan’s minimum wage for untipped workers should increase to $12 an hour — up from $9.87 an hour.
Meanwhile, the minimum wage for tipped workers should be raised to $9.60 an hour, up from $3.75 an hour, according to the ruling.
