MI cafe that operated as a nonprofit is closing permanently because it can't afford state's new minimum-wage requirements.

"Most Americans want to see their fellow citizens thrive and prosper, so it’s only natural that some see a  minimum wage increase as a good thing. But often the loss of jobs due to minimum wage hikes go unreported or unnoticed. In Hillsdale, Michigan a non-profit restaurant called Tastes of Life had to close its doors because of the minimum wage increase that went into effect in September. The former employees of Tastes of Life are people who might not get a chance to work anywhere else, they are former convicts, drug addicts and people who are lacking in work skills. Tastes of Life gave them a chance, but now they’re out of jobs." -- the Lonely Conservative
