The Crowd That Doesn't Want to Raise the Minimum Wage Is Really Out of Touch

People who oppose raising the minimum wage are out of touch. That's the key message to be taken from a new poll released Thursday. The poll, conducted on behalf of Small Business Majority, shows that 57% of small business owners support raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Most of the respondents said that the higher wage would increase consumer demand and make them more competitive with large chain retailers like Walmart.
