  1. Pretty easy to figure out who benefits specifically, any of the businesses that employ the youth of this state. Bigger question is, which one of these businesses does Wink own?

    DeLon Mork (who has the Daily Queen franchise in Madison) more or less said the same thing on NPR -- Check out Cory's blog a while back about that. DeLon claims that he had to teach his new hires how to sweep the floor. Terrible attitude that. The possibility exists that this is a back entrance into the minimum wage issue. However, if the employee is essential enough to keep the business running, then he/she should earn the wage. How many minimum wage people had to show up for work when there is a snow day but others didn't?
