$30 Pizzas at Lanesplitter Pizza & Pub in Emeryville

How's that minimum wage hike working out for you?

At the Los Angeles Times, "A minimum wage arms race has broken out in the Bay Area":
Nina Gates, 44, and Ira Gibson, 39, are employees of Lanesplitter Pizza & Pub in Emeryville, Calif., whose workers earn $15 to $25 an hour as part of a business model that also did away with gratuities and raised prices, making meals at all five locations “sustainably served … no tips necessary.”
 "Sustainably served," and expensive as hell.
