Local Minimum Wage Preemption

While the push for rapid, unprecedented minimum wage increases continues in parts of the country, the harmful consequences of a high minimum wage are becoming clearer. In order to protect individuals and maintain a sustainable business environment, a Local Minimum Wage Preemption prohibits local governments from increasing the minimum wage. This solution, similar to legislation that has been successful in 24 states, works to prevent any risky economic experiments that lead to fewer opportunities for Americans who are just starting their careers.
