NH Senate Defeats Minimum Wage Increase

Date: May 14, 2014

Last week and at the urging of NFIB, the State Senate voted against the increase in the minimum wage proposal that would have increased it by 24% and enacted an annual escalator in the wage rate based on the rate of inflation.  

NFIB argued against the increase by stating that such a proposal would have hurt small businesses and their employees as employee positions and hours would likely have been reduced to offset the 24% increase in payroll.
