Studies suggest that a small increase in the minimum wage would not have a negative effect on overall employment rates, could decrease labor turnover therefore increasing labor productivity, could increase employment rates for single, low-income earners, and could increase consumer spending to stimulate the economy. However, a higher minimum wage could create higher prices and could create more competition in the labor pool.
