And how is that you may ask? It has been one year since the minimum wage was increased to $7.25. That’s 41% more than it was.
Here’s my concern. Thinking about how companies don’t have control over a “minimum wage” is it any wonder that some of these companies are willing to risk hiring illegal aliens and paying less? You know, for doing the work “no American wants to do?”
Kinda flies in the face of reality, I’d say. Cause and effect, that is all this is.
Government mandates a minimum wage increase.
Small business companies can’t afford to pay.
Willing to pay less by hiring cheaper, illegal aliens.
Our people can’t get jobs because of that.
