If your business plan doesn't include paying a living wage, it's a shitty plan and you need to go back to the drawing board.

Nicole Christian of Garrett County Chamber of Commerce says businesses in her part of Maryland shouldn't be forced to pay the same as bizzes in wealthier places like Montgomery County. Even the chamber can't afford to pay more, she says. (paraphrased)

A thread. Minimum wage needs to be a living wage regardless of who is applying. 25+ yrs ago I was a teen in Alberta. At the age of 12 I desperately took any work I could get. We were poor. 3 kids raised by a single mom.
