Press Release

Tonight, President-Elect Joe Biden announced a $2 trillion spending plan that would also raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Congressman John Moolenaar made the following statement on the plan:

“Michigan small businesses have been crushed by state-imposed restrictions and now Joe Biden’s plan is to saddle them with a $15-an-hour federal minimum wage requirement that will make it harder for them to create jobs and hire workers. It’s time to allow all Michigan small businesses to safely re-open, innovate, and grow, without more onerous regulations coming from the federal government.”
