    How much of an increase are we talking about? The hours of operation equal about 1,508 hours per calendar year. The $50k divided evenly will be an increase of about $33 an hour.

    But let's be modest here. Say only have the funds will go towards the help's pay. Are we going to see an increase of $15/ hr passed around. Or will only about 50 cents be shared and the top dogs cash out?

    If everyone makes minimum wage the employee cost is $11,310 per year. But let's say everyone makes $10/hr; that's $15,080 per year.

    Why do they want a $50,000 increase again?
