Minimum wage slated to increase this weekend — along with menu prices

Those earning the current $10.10 an hour should see a bump in their paycheck soon — up to $12 an hour.

Advocates said the change gives about 88,000 workers a livable wage, and it comes at a time when everyone is feeling the pinch from inflation.

Someone working 40 hours a week at minimum wage could get about $300 more a month under the new law.
