US representative race up here. We have Anne Kuster (D) TV ads slammng Charlie Bass (R) for voting against the minimum wage act. Hell, that might be the best vote Charlie has cast. Minimum wage doesn't boost wages, it kills entry level jobs. A whole lot of entry level jobs (life guard, pizza delivery, retail work, fast food) are just barely profitable to the employer. Raise the pay and the jobs go away 'cause the employer starts to loose money on them. These are the summer jobs for high schoolers, first jobs out of welfare, the no experience needed jobs.
Passing a law to raise the pay on these jobs just makes the jobs disappear.
So Charlie, I'll vote for you if you keep voting against minimum wage.
