Rep. Brady: Well-Intentioned Minimum Wage Increase will have Unintended Consequences

“Sometimes the most well-intentioned legislation has unintended consequences. This is one of those bills. Helping workers take home more pay to support themselves and their families is a goal we can all applaud, but dramatically increasing the minimum wage will actually hurt more than it helps. In states and cities where this has been adopted, small businesses have been forced to cut worker hours, or eliminate some jobs altogether. We should be focusing instead on reducing workers’ tax burden to put more money in their pockets, and helping businesses create more and better-paying jobs in our communities.”
