Oregon Senate Passes Minimum Wage Hike Costing Oregon Businesses $1.2 Billion
Salem, Ore. - Today, Senate Democrats passed a partisan
measure mandating steep increases in the minimum wage across
Oregon, resulting in a $1.2 billion burden on Oregon businesses.
The bill, which sets three different minimum wages for different
regions across the state, would increase the minimum wage as
high as $14.75 per hour in urban areas. Despite claims a higher
minimum wage will help low-income workers, Senate Republicans
argued, a significant increase in the minimum wage will weaken
the economy and cost Oregon jobs, especially in rural areas.
