What's going on, Albuquerque?

Some additional thoughts:
SB416 from Richard Martinez would raise the State minimum wag $1 to $8.50. However, it would not change the base wage of $2.13 for tipped workers. Who among the local State reps are supporting this and what is their justification for not adjusting tipped workers base pay?
Remember when Carol Wright and the Restaurant Association pretty much predicted the total demise of the restaurant business within the City limits if the smoking ban was passed? Yeah, we should listen to them for economic advice.
If the City is not going to enforce the voter approved minimum wage ordinance does this mean any initiative based legislation is a waste of time. How about the current mail-in measure? Is someone going to have to go to court to force the City to conduct a run-off if no candidate gets 50%?
Seems to me if people like Dinelli are really serious about putting some distance between themselves and the Mayor on how this City will be run they will be calling pressers to state their administration will support the City minimum wage and make an appearance tomorrow.
I'll miss that pretty rainbow...
Wow. Does this guy know anything about running a business? First of all, when you get hit by a tax increase or mandate like a minimum wage increase, you adjust overhead, profit and prices so that you can absorb it. You don't go to the press and whine. And if you do decide that you just have to make a political statement, you'd better make sure you have the customer base to back you up. A few months ago I remember a certain poster on DCF making a big deal about Monroe's making a statement against the current administration. Ever since then, Monroe's has been absolutely packed. Me thinks the Malt Shop isn't quite there yet to pull that off.
