The current federal minimum wage — $7.25 an hour — is far too low , and not all states have set minimum wages above the federal level. Raising the minimum wage will ensure that workers can support their families and help grow the economy.
Arbitrary increases in the minimum wage to score political points will hurt employment because businesses can’t absorb extra costs without scaling back their workforce or raising prices.
