Minimum Wage Could Be on Nebraska’s November Ballot

Supporters of an effort to increase the minimum wage in Nebraska believe they have more than enough signatures to get the issue on the November ballot. The measure would increase the minimum wage from the federal level of $7.25 to $9 by 2016. Now Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom will do their best to defeat the proposal. President Doug Kagan says this will have a huge negative impact on businesses, consumers and employees.

Kagan says consumers making above the minimum wage will suffer because prices for goods and services will go up but their wages will remain the same.
