NHDP - Scott Brown AGAIN Sides With Koch Brothers, Big Oil, and Wall Street, Against Raising Minimum Wage
The Senate bill would have given more than 110,000 people in New Hampshire a much needed raise, including approximately 67,000 women, by boosting the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. Reports also indicate that increasing the minimum wage would help lift more than 10,000 Granite Staters out of poverty.
The Koch Brothers and their opposition to an increase in the minimum wage has been well documented, and Brown's decision to join their opposition is just the latest example of him supporting their agenda, not ours.
Earlier this year appearing on Fox News, Brown asserted that increasing the minimum wage would lead to “fewer jobs and higher prices.” Brown claimed establishing a more livable wage was “trying to put more people out of business,” and has shown that he is out of step with working families and more concerned with pushing the agenda of his out-of-state special interest backers like the Koch Brothers who would rather protect special breaks for Big Oil and Wall Street at the expense of the middle-class.
