Should Minimum Wage Be Left To The States?
Does leaving the minimum wage up to states work?By Kate Grumke | October 28, 2015
For some Republican candidates, raising the minimum wage isn't something they support because they believe the minimum wage should be left up to the states, if not the market.
"First, I believe that minimum wage should be a state decision, not a federal decision. Why? Because it makes no sense to say that the minimum wage in New York City is the same as the minimum wage in Mason City, Iowa," said Carly Fiorina.
"We need to leave it to the private sector. I think state minimum wages are fine. The federal government shouldn't be doing this," said Jeb Bush.
