Within three months of a wage hike, Aaronson finds that a 10 percent increase in the minimum wage resulted in a – percent increase in restaurant prices. Much of the increase occurred within the first month of the wage hike. In the fast food sector, prices rise percent in response to a 10 percent increase.   In reality, raising the minimum wage from its current $ per hour to $ per hour will cause all of these negative effects: employers will lay off workers, hire fewer workers, and raise prices.

Unlike other minimum-wage studies, which use secret proprietary “Synthetic Seattle” models to prove their points, this supermarket study uses a very clear and.

Many business leaders fear that any increase in the minimum wage will be passed on to consumers through price increases thereby slowing spending and economic growth, but that may not be the case.
