VIDEO: Will small businesses really be affected by a minimum wage increase?

By Dogwood Staff

Both Senate Bill 1 and House Bill 1 were introduced by Democrats and passed on party-line votes in the House of Delegates and Virginia Senate without any Republican support. Both bills passed out of the other chamber within the last few weeks. Republicans say they aren’t in support of raising the minimum wage because of what they say would have a negative impact on small business owners. No data exists that proves this claim, however. Gov. Youngkin has until April 8 to either sign, veto, or recommend amendments to the legislation before lawmakers reconvene on April 17.
