I know that my family members that are franchise owners
with mostly minimum wage earners are unfortunately having to cut their employees hours to 28 a week in order to stay in business. They are busy hiring as many people as they can to get the staffing to the needed level to operate. Not at all how they want to do things, but the only way they can. I suspect there will be more ½ jobs available as a result. They are also removing their clause restricting employees (non-managers) from working for competitors in hopes and expectations that employees will have to hold to ½ time jobs….
