Reader comment on: Minimum Wage
Submitted by randy (United States), Feb 26, 2014 02:57
Someone noted that many union wage levels are tied to minimum wage, so increase to minimum is step increase to those union wages. So it that part of cbo calculations for the job losses? Would make sense since salary portion and attached benefits would rise (employee portion of social and Medicare)leaving less room for new employees. Haven't heard much discussion on this ripple across labor force.
