Small Biz Say Raise The Wage

Debate about raising the minimum wage is a hot topic, and the impact to small businesses has been a sticking point in the argument. But Small Business Majority asked in a scientific opinion poll and found a majority of small businesses support raising the federal minimum wage and adjusting it annually to keep pace with the cost of living. 

Consumer demand is small business owners’ No. 1 concern, and they see a raise in the minimum wage as a way to stoke that demand. An increase would help entrepreneurs create jobs, which strengthens the economy even more, creating an economic domino effect. Small business owners are the nation’s biggest job creators. Politicians should listen to what they’re saying and act accordingly.
