Committee members heard testimony from economists and small business owners concerning the economic impacts of raising the minimum wage. They testified about whether a raise would cause a rise in unemployment, especially among young people and other consequences. Much of the economic testimony focused on a New Jersey study, cited by those who support raising the minimum wage, which concludes that raising the minimum wage does not increse unemploymeny. Reps. McIntosh and Hutchinson have proposed to increase minimum wage workers' net income by tax reductions, rather than a wage increase. close
