The Case Assignment

How Can Rock King Plan for the Increasing Minimum Wage Requirements?

Case Synopsis

Like many restaurants, Rock King relies heavily on employees to serve customers and run day-to-day activities. Everything from order intake to food prep, to sanitation, is done by a team of 30-40 full-time employees across multiple shifts per store. Most entry-level employees at Rock King make minimum wage, which as of September 1st in Illinois is $8.25 per hour. By January 2020, that will be $9.25, with hopes that by 2025 the minimum wage will be $15. Since Rock King is managing a large team that will most definitely be impacted by this change, employee compensation and the future of Rock King's talent management protocols have been top-of-mind for leadership since the law passed earlier in 2019. Without other changes to the business model, Rock King is concerned that it'll be extremely difficult to remain profitable with the cost of labor rising by over 15% over the next 5 years. Rock King needs your help analyzing the change in labor laws in hopes of identifying a solution that the business can consider in order to maintain the status quo as a profitable business moving forward.
