A Virtual Receptionist Can Help With Cost Reduction
The new administration in office has proposed an increase to minimum wage in the United States. The proposal includes a mandate that would mean a $15 minimum wage at the federal level. The current federal level minimum wage is $7.25 and has been there since 2009. Whether you are for or against an increase, options are always a good thing.
Say for instance, you are currently paying your receptionist $10/hour to answer the phones. If this regulation goes through, that would mean at 50% increase to your expenses. That can be a large burden for a small business to incur.
