Protecting Jobs Through A Commonsense Approach To The Minimum Wage
U.S. Senate Republican Leader-Elect Mitch McConnell made the following statement Wednesday regarding the President's comments on minimum wage and protecting American jobs:
"An increase in the minimum wage needs to help both the workers who earn it and the small businesses that pay it. That's why it just makes sense to pair the increased wage with tax and regulatory relief to help the small businesses that provide most of the jobs in this country stay competitive and employ even more people. The President laid out a commonsense approach to this issue, one that the Congress can pass in a bipartisan way."
