Recession Sharpens GA Wage War
Howard Mavity was quoted in The Atlanta Journal- Constitution article “Recession Sharpens GA Wage War” on September 7, 2014.
Howard was quoted on his take of raising minimum wage.
Howard agreed that the minimum wage should be raised a bit. A jump to $15 an hour, though, would put too much of a financial burden on franchise owners and not solve the impoverishment of low-wage workers.
“The purpose of this minimum wage is to try and help people get by,” Howard said. “So if we only jack up the minimum wage, we won’t get at key structural issues facing the economy (like) better education and a trained workforce.”
