A company on the edge, employing a hundred plus workers. Lets cram a law into the NY books to raise the minimum wage. http://www.wwnytv.com/news/local/157-Jobs-Lost-As-Climax-Plant-Closes-374303011.html If the business environment and economy was great, my closest city would have a non-city vendor at the Watertown Ice Arena, and business' would not be leaving the county. http://www.wwnytv.com/news/local/City-To-Run-Watertown-Arena-Concessions-374238931.html The city thought the venue was so good they set a minimum of 900 plus dollars to run the concession. They approached eight providers and none of them wanted to bid. They then went to open bid and the highest bid was 400 dollars a month for dues. They turned it down and now the concession will be staffed by city workers (tax dollars).
