msn_logo_03bMSN Media – “We support a raise in the minimum wage to $15 because the current minimum is not close to a living wage. As an employer, part of my responsibility is to look after the fiscal health of my staff, and ensure they have a living wage. This will benefit my business, the happiness of my staff, and the citizens of Portland. The higher wage will give me a greater pool of people to hire as future employees, and a wider, better range of potential clients.” – Matt Navarre

 Quan Linh Asian Bistros  my parents never forgot about their ‘roots’ – they know what it is like to be poor. They know how hard it is to live on a minimum wage. Because of this, our business is committed to providing the best for our employees.

Up until recently, we paid all our staff a base wage of $10/hr. If there was a slow night where they received minimal tips, my father would increase their base wages so that they would average out to at least $15/hr.

Since we first saw campaign posters for Nicholas Caleb, we knew that $10/hr was not enough for a living wage. Starting in May 2014, all our staff will have a base wage of $15.00 per hour, and we’ll be looking at various health insurance plans to cover our workers as well.” -Tommy Ly, Quan Linh Asian Bistros
