Local Restaurants Say Rising Minimum Wage is Hurting Their Industry

YAKIMA, Wa -  Local restaurants say increasing minimum wage will force them to raise the prices on their menus.

They say that could hurt business in the long run -- even cause some restaurants to close, limiting choices for people in Yakima.

Minimum wage will increase 30 cents to $7.93 and hour on January First.

State Labor and Industries says Washington will continue to have the highest minimum wage in the nation.
