Back here on the South Plains, local businesses say little will change with the increase in the minimum wage. They say most businesses are already ahead of the game . Phil Crenshaw of Brainpower Personnel says, "I think the average employer anticipates this and is not going to have a problem with it." Gary Lawrence of Lubbock Economic Development Association says "turn over is very expensive, training is expensive so most of the companies that I'm familiar with in Lubbock, they're considerably north of the minimum wage at this point." Lubbock has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state and local employers say a couple of extra bucks goes a long way in finding and keeping good workers.
