Issue:  Minimum Wage

  Neutral   Oppose


Position Statement:  I oppose raising the minimum wage.

Description of Position: 
Creating higher paying jobs is the best way for people to earn a better living. Raising the minimum wage will make it harder for small businesses to hire more employees. The products and services offered will cost the consumer more to purchase. Raising the minimum wage is NOT the answer. As a small business owner I know what happens when the minimum wage is raised. Jobs are LOST.

I believe IT'S TIME to elect officials that will create jobs. By creating jobs it makes the job market more competitive. When the market becomes competitive wages INCREASE. Everybody wins. Business owners will enjoy a better economy to operate their business and can AFFORD to pay higher wages. Raising the minimum wage will hurt our economy and our job market. Instead we need to work to keep our jobs HERE in the US. Outsourcing of jobs is already a big issue and raising the minimum wage will only make it worse. IT'S TIME to elect common sense to the US Senate.
