Ok .I have had 4 years of complete hell in employees in Vegas . Most on drugs , criminals are genetically damaged

I hired 2 new employees and they have done a damn good job . Yes they make mistakes but they take notes and actually care .
I am paying them $12 an hour !!
That is what every franchise charges their employees.
I just feel that I have struck gold !!
They are even getting me 5 star reviews on Google and Yelp after years of 1 stars

I am thinking about inc wage ??

As a former business owner, I would recommend a bonus check for each of them to begin with, not an immediate raise. They will be more excited about an unexpected check anyway.

You should cut the salary of the white workers and give it to the not white workers in the name of social justice.

Beyond that, I would get rid of the crappy employees one by one before I started handing out wage increases for doing your job as you are supposed to.

Personally I wouldn't give a bonus before 3 months. If it were me, at 3 months I would give them both 100 bucks and tell them you are really happy with them. Tell them you believe in rewarding reliability and good performance and thank them for being dependable and good at their job.

I don't think you can go wrong there. That gives you more time to assess them and see if they are worth raises in pay which is a bigger deal for you in the long run.
