2 reasons to not raise the minimum wage: Two Reasons Not to Raise the Minimum Wage - Bloomberg

(and unemployment is NOT one of them) - this is a good read that considers the literature and shows why the political arguments of the Dems and GOP are both flawed (go figure :p)
MYP, in response to your provided link:
I’m a proponent of both minimum wage annually updated to keep abreast with the U.S. dollar’s inflation and the earned income tax credit.

Their concepts are not opposed to each other; they’re both beneficial to our nation’s economy. I advocate we have it all.

I do think there should be a minimum wage but no matter how much you raise this wage some of those jobs can be moved to cheaper parts of the world.

The problem is and always will be becoming Global. I myself am against this move and say we need to protect our own. To move to a global economy will destroy many of those industrial countries and we have already seen the effects.

We need to pull out and start making American again and letting others know we are only going to worry about our people and not the world in general.
