$8. 10.10 in 2018

But seasonal parks, restraunts grossing under 400k and a few other things are exempt

Op you need to figure out your cost of doing business. I don't pay help $8 an hour.

wow, I would love to get GOOD help for $8 / hr, but who can really live on that, especially if taxes are involved for them. That is like $6.50 / hr after taxes.
