    Thumbs up California and the impact of the $20 minimum wage for fast food workers.

    This is just the beginning...

    California Pizza Hut franchises announce layoffs of delivery drivers before new $20 minimum wage: report

    Multiple Pizza Hut franchises in California are planning to lay off delivery drivers as the restaurant chain braces for an increase in the minimum wage for fast food workers next year.

    Several Pizza Hut operators filed notices to comply with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act saying they were discontinuing their delivery services.

    "PacPizza, LLC, operating as Pizza Hut, has made a business decision to eliminate first-party delivery services and, as a result, the elimination of all delivery driver positions," a federal WARN Act notice filed by the fast-food operator with the state's Employment Development Department said, Business Insider reported.

    Another operator, Southern California Pizza Co. also announced layoffs of around 841 drivers across the state. The moves impact Pizza Hut locations in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside and Ventura counties.

    Several Pizza Hut operators announced that they will discontinue delivery services at a number of locations in California. (Pizza Hut / Fox News)

    Many of the franchises will rely on third-party delivery apps like Uber Eats, GrubHub and DoorDash.

    The layoffs announcements came months before most fast food workers in California will begin earning a minimum wage of $20 per hour, beginning in April. The increase was proposed as a way to offset the increasing cost of living for Californians.

    This is why Gringo liberals are killing the Blue States' economies. Over-regulation. Over-taxation. Blame business owners (Job creators). This is what Jimmy G blindly supports. This is why Jimmy G is a schmuck. Don't be like Jimmy G.

    This is yellow journalism, now go interview the thousands of employees who got a subtantial raise. The busisses that sells a quality product can pass on the cost to the customer.
    The business using cat and dog instead of chicken have to shut their doors. The customers won't even notice the tiny price increase. This needs to happen nationwide in all industries.

    California lawmakers are absolute idiots! Flipping burgers is now a $42,000 per year job. LOL. Virtually no one will actually make that, however, because the big chains will simply have mass layoffs as the Pizza Hut franchises just did and will increase automation. Want to order from McDonalds, you better use the app or the self-serve kiosk in the store. There won’t be an employee to help you. California is also making it mandatory that every employee receives 40 hours of sick pay per year. There are going to be a lot of part-timers making $20/hour who then qualify for food stamps, housing assistance, free medical, etc… and they will have ZERO incentive to make more or they will lose all those benefits.

    The $20/hr wage also fucks independent owners like myself because I can’t afford to pay that wage so how do I find decent employees when they can go down the street and earn $4/hour more. At my current staffing levels, if I upped everyone’s pay to $20/hr I would take roughly a $5,000 per month hit. No way I can afford to do that. That money would have to be made up through a combination of higher prices and cutting of labor.

    On the bright side though, California is truly looking out for its citizens…. You can’t buy menthol cigarettes anymore and after the 1st of the year Red Skittles will be outlawed. Lawmakers are really talking the big problems facing the state. LMAO

    A lot of idiots support these endless minimum wage increases, not understanding that most fast food places are franchises or independent shops, and not owned by big corporations. Due to the cheapness of the food sold, the margins are small, and vastly increased labor costs can put these businesses in the red.

    As you mentioned, this will simply result in mass layoffs.

    Yet another stupid California law meant to "help" the poor, which will accomplish the opposite. And even if it did help, the state shouldn't be using small business owners to directly fund what is essentially a social program.
