    Commenting on the negative effects of raising the minimum wage through federal legislation, an official with the National Restaurant Association said that “not every job is there to sustain a family of four.”

    At a Feb. 9 panel discussion on Capitol Hill sponsored by the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), National Restaurant Association Senior Vice President Alfonso Amador said, “There seems to be a perception that every job needs to be able to maintain a family of four. Not every job is there to sustain a family of four.”

    CEI held the event to discuss “regulatory threats to flexible employment and worker freedom.” The National Restaurant Association is a trade association that advocates on behalf of the foodservice industry.
