President Obama and his allies in Congress are calling for a nationwide minimum wage hike. While well-intentioned, raising the minimum wage will do more harm than good.
Despite the President's claim that raising the minimum wage will help those who need it most, economists widely agree that a minimum wage hike would increase unemployment among low-skilled and young workers.
When it comes to helping the poor, good intentions are not enough.
Please stand with low-income workers, unemployed Americans, and small businesses by opposing a minimum wage increase.
