3 Millions of people across the country, and plenty right here in Jacksonville are going to see a little more in their next paycheck. Florida is among several states boosting the minimum wage.. starting tomorrow. Here... the wage will go up to 7-dollars and 93 cents an hour. As Channel 4's Alicia Booth shows us .. many people are happy about the increase.. while others say -- there's a price to pay when government dictates what happens in private business. 3 3 00-0516-2044-481'29-1'351'45- 1'50 As a McDonalds employee supporting his family on minimum wage, John Glasgow Jr.finds 'free' activities like going to the Gator Bowl parade are a good way to make ends meet. And news of the few extra dollars he'll get in his next paycheck.. even better."what did you think when you heard it was going up 14 cents an hour? I really couldn't believe it.I didn't even know it was going to happen." But people across the country, and right here in Jacksonville, have been pushing for it to happen.. with protestors speaking out on behalf of minimum wage workers. In all, 13 states are now boosting pay to various levels..with Florida near the middle. "with minimum wage going up to 7.93, that's only 14 cents more an hour, but if you're a full-time employee, that's more than 5 bucks a paycheck.. and that could make a difference." But on the flip side of that boost..is the fact that that money has to come from somewhere.. And in many cases it's out of the pockets of small business owners. At the locally owned Metro Diners..employees here are already paid above minimum wage, so the current boost doesn't have a big impact.. But manager John Davoli Jr says.. it's a slippery slope when the government starts getting more involved with how they do business. "makes it a little more difficult." Davoli's family already pays for health insurance for their full-time employees.. but it's a perk that's going to hurt their bottom line .. The government's Affordable Care Act..is creating a lot of financial uncertainty."That cost is still going to double, at least double for us, so I don't know."No one knows 'exactly' how the minimum wage increases will affect the country.. but people like Gary Dais believe it will be positive."I think it's gonna encourage people to try to seek work, so for Florida and any other state right now, I think it's a great thing." Whether it's a welcome change.. or tough to swallow.. in 2014.. minimum wage will be a little less minimal.Alicia Booth, Channel 4, the local station.
