Another Minnesota-based company is hiking its own minimum wage. Mahtomedi-based Chuck and Don’s Pet Food Outlet is giving its employees a starting wage of $10.10 an hour. Company founder Chuck Anderson says he didn’t want to wait for mandates from the government to do what he calls “the right thing.”
Two Minnesota guys took their love for man’s best friends and turned it into a successful company. Chuck and Don’s is still expanding, more than 20 years after opening their first store. Most businesses cater to people, but this one has to also keep up with everyone’s beloved pets.
