“Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to raise minimum wage to $22 per hour"

Boston- Yesterday, citing a college professor’s study, Senator Elizabeth Warren advocated raising the minimum wage to $22 per hour according to various reports including The Washington Times.   

“Only an out-of-touch college professor paid well over $300,000 to teach one class could conclude that our struggling economy and small businesses can shoulder a government mandate of this magnitude," said Kirsten Hughes, MassGOP Chairman.  "Senator Warren’s musings would cripple businesses and increase the unemployment lines.”

“Ms. Warren then suggested that those who say increasing the minimum wage to reflect current indexes are using flawed math. Raising the minimum wage by several dollars an hour is doable, she said.”
