To do that we used the database of our partner CSRHub, which compiles reports on corporate social responsibility. We screened for companies in the restaurant and hotel sector that had industry-beating ratings for how they treat their employees based on compensation, diversity and training.The average score for companies in the industry is 55, so we included all the companies that had a rating of 64 or higher. That left us with six companies on our list, three hotel chains and three restaurant chains. Depending on the types of laws that get passed (tipping credit? benefit credit?) these companies could benefit handily from a minimum wage increase, because their margins would suffer less of a shock.
