What to Know: The left’s push for a minimum wage increase could force many women out of the workforce for an unexpected reason—higher childcare costs.

The TPPF Take: A minimum wage hike is bad economic policy.

“Raising the minimum wage—especially now, in the midst of a government-induced economic slowdown—would devastate small businesses,” says TPPF’s Vance Ginn. “It would hurt those it is intended to help the most, by eliminating jobs, reducing the hours of those who still have them, and by cutting off the lowest rungs of the ladder to success.”
