It was a couple weeks ago I gleefully reported in the business section how Yorozu was raising its starting pay by about $2 a hour. This is parade-worthy news.Jobs have certainly returned since the Great Recession, but the one thing that's lagged behind is pay. It's stayed flat, stagnant.There's a push to raise the nationwide minimum wage to $10 an hour and fast-food workers have started their own campaign to earn $15 an hour.
