What Some Businesses Are Rebelling Against the Chamber of Commerce About

November 14, 2013

The Chamber of Commerce may be against raising the federal minimum wage, but let’s not forget the Chamber doesn’t represent all businesses. In fact, some 67% of small business owners support not only raising the federal minimum wage, but indexing it to inflation so it won’t lose its value over the years. Raising the minimum wage is good for business, and small business owners know it.
