It's a classic big business argument: raise minimum wages and unemployment will go up. Companies simply can't afford to pay their workers a decent, much less living, wage.
Except it's not true. And if you don't believe us, believe Mary Poppins.
The other 37 states had a 0.61 percent growth.
The realization comes months after the Congressional Budget Office predicted raising the minimum wage to $10.10 would cost the economy 500,000 jobs.
Of course, other factors could be at work for the job growth besides wages. But it's time to challenge the idea that higher wages automatically mean job losses.
