Marketer selects payments firm as exclusive media provider for fueling islands
Most convenience retailers support the need for a minimum wage but were mixed about the need for an increase to it.
In a recent CSP poll of more than 200 convenience-store retailers, nearly 60% opposed raising the federal minimum wage. For those who supported an increase, most—42%—favored an increase to no more than $9 an hour, below the Obama administration’s proposal of a $10.10 wage. And nearly 40% believed there should be no federal minimum wage at all.

Pay raises are inciting demonstrations across parts of the country. Specifically, thousands of frontline workers, including those who are the face of our retail brands, contend they are not making a livable wage. In cities such as Seattle and Chicago, these folks are pushing for as much as $15 per hour. As a result, we as a country are being asked to assess our values. The questions are many, and the solutions are vexing.
To me, the NACS Show is my official start to a new year. And because this is also an election year for control of Congress, I have no doubt there’ll be lots of talk about politics and its effect on the convenience-store industry.
