I manage employees that earn $17 an hour to start. We used to be an employer of choice for entry-level candidates as we paid more than our competitors and our jobs require minimal training — a couple of hours, and you’re ready to go! California’s minimum wage is now $15 an hour, so our “great pay” is barely better than minimum wage, and we’re getting less applicants. How can I continue to attract entry-level candidates when I really cannot afford to raise their pay rates?
