New wage boost puts squeeze on teenage workers across Arizona

AZCentral Oh, for the days when Arizona's high school students could roll pizza dough, sweep up sticky floors in theaters or scoop ice cream without worrying about ballot initiatives affecting their earning power. That's certainly not the case under the state's new minimum-wage law that went into effect last month.

Surprise, surprise, this is whar raising the minimum wage will do.
Some Valley employers, especially those in the food industry, say payroll budgets have risen so much that they're cutting hours, instituting hiring freezes and laying off employees.

Libs think government is the answer to everything. Conservatives are bright enough to see that it sometimes creates more problems than it solves.
