Springfield Restaurant Owner Testifies Against Minimum Wage Increase


The owner of a Springfield restaurant says he could be forced to cut minimum wage jobs at his establishment if Illinois raises its minimum wage to more than $10 an hour.

 

Mike Murphy of Charlie Parkers Diner says his business model is based on offering low prices, so his only option for dealing with the additional cost would be to make do with fewer people.

 

Despite his warnings, though, an Illinois Senate committee has passed a bill that would gradually raise the state’s wage from the current $8.25 an hour to $10.65 an hour by 2016.

 

The bill’s sponsor says it may go through more changes before a full Senate vote.
