Our next guest is John Barker, President and CEO of the Ohio Restaurant Association (ORA), he will discuss HR 582 and its devastating effects on small, family-owned restaurants and their employees who would face higher labor costs and possibly forced to reduce employee hours. He’ll also give some common-sense tips to the minimum wage issue that reflects the economic realities of Ohio.

Congress recently introduced legislation titled the “Raise the Wage Act” (H.R. 582/S.150) that would increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 per hour by 2024 and would index it to median wage growth thereafter eliminating the tip credit. $15 in New York is not $15 in Ohio so a “one size fits all” approach to this issue could severely cripple restaurants leading to job losses, shift reductions and even closings. The bill also eliminates the tip credit where current tipped employees average $19-$25 per hour.  If the tip credit ends, employees will likely earn less than now.

The economic realities of each state should be examined especially in areas where workers do not face the cost of living they do in major cities.  Passing a $15 per hour starting wage in rural areas would have stifling impacts to restaurants and other small businesses who can’t absorb it.  Higher wages would lead to employers cutting back on workers’ hours and/or eliminating positions, thereby hurting those it was intended to help.  Additionally, when labor costs rise, employers in labor-intensive industries such as restaurants are forced to raise menu prices to maintain profitability, thereby driving up consumer costs.

Our first guest is Cathy Parker, author of Northern Lights: One Woman, Two Teams, and the Football Field That Changed Their LivesShe will discuss her book an inspiring story and beautiful reminder of how we’re sometimes called to the most unlikely of causes—and how, when we believe in something bigger than ourselves, we can change our own lives and the lives of others for the better.


Cathy Parker had no idea her life was about to change until ESPN feature about a football team from the Arctic Circle lit a fire in her soul that she couldn’t ignore. A stirring within her to help the Barrow Whalers football team in a struggling community in Barrow, Alaska, almost 4,000 miles away from her home in Jacksonville, Florida, started a nationwide movement that raised over half a million dollars to build an artificial-turf stadium for a team that needed it. Overcoming obstacle after obstacle, what started out as a call within Cathy became so much bigger and brought two football teams together in surprising (and sometimes hilarious) ways. Her book and the story that will soon be a major motion picture from director Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama, Hitch, Ever After).

Cathy Parker and her husband, Carl, have raised four children, all at the ball fields. Cathy has experienced the extreme highs and lows of raising athletes and can relate to the toll athletics can have on the family. She founded the not-for-profits to help athletes and their families deal with the realities of sports and use their influence for good. Her not-for-profits are Athletes To Champions and Beyond the Ballfield.
