DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans feel a sudden minimum wage hike would hurt most businesses, who would have to hire fewer employees and give existing workers fewer hours to absorb the costs, especially small and medium sized businesses with a small employee payroll budget.

FOR Democrats

The current goal of the democratic party is to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour and protect the overtime rule that ensures workers are compensated for holidays and extra hours.
