Raise of Minnesota's minimum wage takes effect on Friday
Grand Forks ND 2220 South Washington

This Friday, August 1, Minnesota's minimum wage increases to $8 per hour for most businesses.

That will mean a pay hike of about seventy-five cents an hour for those workers currently at the federal minimum wage of $7.25.

How might this affect some local businesses?  David Schwab reports.
