What are our kids going to do when this industry is gone?
I’ve been working as long as I’ve legally been allowed to. When I was a teenager I worked at Wendy’s, making minimum wage or just above it. It wasn’t a lot of money but it was the start I needed to get experience, help pay the bills and build the foundation for a career in the same industry that now supports my family. The restaurant industry is facing raising costs, I worry that when push comes to shove, the only thing that’s going to give are jobs and my son won’t have the same opportunities I did.
