Can a local business survive an increased minimum wage? Mike DiSapio, Jr. from Pat’s IGA in Wolcott, CT explains why a $15 minimum wage would be a more complicated policy to enact than simply hiking their hourly rates. Mike also explains how self-checkouts, online shopping, and more technological developments have affected his business. Pat's IGA has become a staple of the community, with a major focus on their catering and prepared foods division, their from-scratch bakery, and local produce.
