California $20 minimum wage eliminating jobs before it takes effect

The California minimum wage for fast food employees is stlet to jump to $20 per hour in April. Two Pizza Hut franchisees are cutting all their delivery driver jobs as a result.

How many jobs will be lost once it takes full effect? How high will prices have to rise? Never buy fast food in California again. The price won’t be worth the hit to your mental, physical, or economic health.

Two large Pizza Hut operators in California are laying off all their delivery drivers ahead of a new state law that raises the minimum wage for fast-food workers to $20 an hour, Business Insider reports.

The layoffs impact hundreds of Pizza Hut locations across the state including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura and San Bernardino counties and Sacramento, and involve more than 1,200 in-house delivery drivers.
