MSBC statement on minimum wage vote in the House
From MSBC Director Will Ikard:
"I speak on behalf of hundreds of small business owners across the state when I say thank you to the Maine House of Representatives for supporting a clean vote on a real minimum wage increase. In November, Mainers will have a chance to vote on an initiative that will raise wages for 159,000 Mainers working hard jobs and struggling to get by and it will put more money into local economies, lifting all boats and helping small businesses compete. The action the Maine House took today was both morally right and economically vital."
