A Backlash AGAINST the Minimum Wage?

The only thing we heard prior to Congress’s recent vote on a higher mandated wage was that Republicans were acting before the November elections in order to appear more friendly to low-wage workers.
Of course, we might never hear widespread talk of the backlash against Chicago’s recent minimum wage hike due to the fact that it will keep poor and low-income workers out of the work force where they can earn valuable skills that will allow them to move up the economic ladder. Perhaps minimum wage advocates really just want to keep these people on welfare and expand the size of government?
