Majority of Small Businesses Support Minimum Wage Increase


On Thursday, Small Business Majority released the results of a national web survey of 500 small business owners. This poll, conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, reveals that a 57 percent majority of small business owners supports increasing the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. They cite enhancing consumer spending and strengthening the economy as reasons to boost pay. A majority also agrees that raising the minimum wage would decrease pressure on taxpayer-finanaced government assistance to make up for low wages.
