http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_22618530/albuqu...An Albuquerque restaurant owner says he's not going to comply with the city's new minimum wage law, and the city doesn't plan to do anything about it, at least for now.Eric Szeman says his Route 66 Malt Shop cannot afford to comply with the wage law.It raises most workers' hourly pay to $8.50 from $7.50 and tipped employees' hourly pay to $3.83 from $2.13.Szeman says his workers have agreed to keep working at the old pay rates and that there's no enforcement of the new law.The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/ZoO9gZ ) reports that the law authorizes workers to sue and the city attorney to enforce it.But City Attorney David Tourek says he's not planning to take action until the City Council provides him with authorization and funding.The employees agreed to work for the old minimum wage. I guess they prefer not to sacrifice any fellow employees & thus prolly have a higher workload due to a reduced workforce. Or worse have the owner shutter the business. Who would have thunk it.<g>
