• Here’s Why Dunkin’ Donuts CEO Unloaded on Obama’s Latest Push For Wealth Redistribution

    The past year, we’ve seen Seattle’s minimum wage hike causing workers to ask for fewer hours in order to keep their government goodies. San Francisco has passed a similarly awful minimum wage measure and New York state isn’t far behind.

    That’s what scares the hell out of Dunkin’ Donuts Brands CEO Nigel Travis.

    Travis says he supports “reasonable increases in the minimum wage,” but also believes New York State’s “absolutely outrageous” $15 minimum wage will result in less hiring and more layoffs.

    “It’s going to affect small businesses and franchises,” Travis said in reaction to New York state’s wage board recommending fast food workers pay increase to $15 per hour.

    Thanks to the kooks running government up in Seattle, 12 employees of Z Pizza had to find new jobs to feed themselves and their families because the cities minimum wage increase forced their business to shutdown.

    New York state lawmakers plan to implement their lousy wage increase at the end of 2018 in New York City.
