When you have 5000-6000 a week in payroll, shit adds up fast.
I know how it goes. I've worked for many a small companies, and I don't see how some are making it right now. You've got to pay attention to every cent spent, anymore. You would be a perfect example of why doubling the minimum wage would not work, but many won't listen to people that know this. Their "studies" supposedly disprove what actually goes on in the real world.
