Do you think the city should set an increased minimum wage for larger businesses?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 8, 2006
“Yes, just because this is a college town and it’s hard to get by for everyone who is in school and/or trying to pay off their loans.”
“No. I’m concerned that it would mean fewer jobs. If the wage goes up, the company : would simply have to hire less workers to do the same amount of work.”
“Yes. I think it would help people in school and people who are saving up for school. The cost of living is high here, so it would help them pay for that, too.”
“Yeah. If people are willing to work at their standards, they should get paid accordingly. Everybody needs more money.”
