The action behind a minimum wage increase at the federal level might be stalled in Washington, but the debate over this issue in cities and states around the nation has some operators worried that their grave concerns are getting lost in the noise.

In some markets, restaurant brands might be dissuaded from expanding or might face the need to cut worker hours or raise menu prices if proposals for a wage floor anywhere between $10 and $15 get enacted.
