Executives loathe raising the minimum wage. They are going to try and scare you by saying that higher wages mean fewer jobs, and your job might be on the line if you go out there and vote for your representative in congress who wants to raise the minimum wage.
This is lie. In fact, there are statistics to back this up.
States with the lowest minimum wage are the poorest in the country. Yet, states with the highest minimum wage are having some of the strongest economies around right now.
Don’t buy into the argument that being in favor of raising the minimum wage is threatening your job—stats prove otherwise.
The receptionist at your company, the cashier at McDonalds—they work hard too, and they need to put food on their table as well. Their kids eat well, they feel great, do well in school, get great jobs and boost the economy.
