: Studies (in the USA) suggest that for every 10 percent increase in the minimum wage, a minimum of 100,000 jobs are lost. There may be asmall increase in jobs for factory machine producers (to replace these people).


Can you provide the study?

One study can be found at this site.
Go to "search", type in "minimum wage" and then check out report titled: "Small Business and the Minimum Wage. You'll find it disputes your conclusions.

McSpotlight: Whoops. Sorry about the dual posting.
