    « Hourly Fees Cross the $1,200 Mark | Main | SB 1352 - Prevailing Wages »

    The price of goods and services is not tied to the minimum wage. A business entity can only charge what the market will bear, regardless of what they pay their lowest-paid workers. So, statements like "if you allow the minimum wage to rise, expenses also rise" are invalid. Businesses are able to keep wages artificially low because a lot of bargaining power, whereas low-paid workers have little bargaining power.


    I currently make $8/hr in Indio, CA.
    I just heard minimum wage went up like 75 cents.
    True? or Untrue?
