    Business news 2024

    The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour and has not changed since 2007. In 2024, six states – California, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Washington – will have a minimum wage of more than double that amount.

    22 states to raise minimum wage on New Year's Day
    HuffPost, Dec 26 2023 7:00 AM EST

    Workers in 22 states and dozens of localities will see a wage hike on New Year’s, thanks to cost-of-living adjustments built into minimum wage laws. In all, 65 cities, counties and states will hike their wage floors at the start of 2024, the majority of them hitting at least $15 per hour. Another three states and 22 local jurisdictions will boost their minimums later in the year, including 15 that will set a floor of at least $17 for some workers.

    California lawmaker’s minimum wage increase bill leads to massive layoffs for pizza delivery drivers
    City News Service, Dec 26 2023

    Pizza Hut is set to lay off more than 1,200 delivery drivers in Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties in 2024, ahead of a new state law that boosts the fast-food minimum wage by $4 to $20 per hour. The law, known as Assembly Bill 1228, was introduced by Assemblyman Chris Holden, D-Pasadena, and signed into law in September by Governor Gavin Newsom. The layoffs are planned through the end of February, ahead of the pay increase slated to begin in April. Pizza Hut franchises are preparing to pivot toward third-party apps such as DoorDash, GrubHub and UberEats for pizza and food deliveries.

    "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer," declared 19th-century British poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. That is more true now than ever.

    Sam Walton founded Walmart in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas, and founded Sam's Club in 1983 in Midwest City, Oklahoma. Worldwide, there are around 600 Sam's Clubs and 10,600 Walmarts. At each store, an employee near the exit glances at the receipt of each customer leaving the store and makes a mark across it, usually with a yellow highlighter, then motions the customer to proceed. Somehow that is supposed to prevent theft. I fail to see how. At Sam's Club, those humans will be replaced by A.I. – and no more yellow highlighters.

    Sam's Club will stop checking receipts at the door – and instead use AI to snap photos of your shopping cart
