The implementation of the new minimum wage law hasn’t affected me that much because I am a floor covering contractor. I can see where it would affect other small retail businesses or restaurants but for the most part it has not affected the way I do business. I can say that over the last year my business is up 30%. I believe that the public in general is entrusted into President Trump and they are starting to spend their money again and invest in our economy which is a win for large and small businesses alike.
Because of that, I have seen one of the better years since I have been in business and that has been 15 years now. I have two crews that run full time now and because of the growth in the economy, I will have my own store and two additional crews by the end of the year.
