WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - On December 31st, the minimum wage will increase another 70 cents. While the governor says it isn’t hurting the economy, not all small business owners agree:
How about we lower gas and food and rent instead of just increasing everything and going in circles.
I’ve been at my job almost 5 years and that’s the only raise I get is when minimum wage goes up.
Restaurants in the area have closed due in part to the increase in minimum wage. McDonald’s went with kiosks to cut down on payroll costs.
If you can’t afford to pay your employees a livable wage, you obviously shouldn’t be in business. Find something you’re better at and let someone who knows what they’re doing take over.
Local officials with the Department of Motor Vehicles are voicing concerns over the Green Light Law which will allow illegal immigrants in New York to become licensed drivers:
Nothing wrong with them getting a license...They're humans.

It’s going to cause more problems than they know. The word illegal means just that. Why can’t our government see this?

DMV clerks should refuse to help them.
If I violate the federal law, it’s a felony. NYS does it, it’s ok?
Potsdam schools will no longer celebrate Columbus Day. Instead, they will celebrate Indigenous People’s Day. It was students’ idea and most of your feedback is about that:
Considering he did nothing worth celebrating, this is a pretty good move.
Since when do we allow elementary students to make a decision? You can tell liberal teachers were behind this with their brainwashing tactics.
Teaching the REAL history of what Columbus did is not brainwashing.
Oh, please! Another example of fitting someone’s agenda and erasing history.
