Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “Indexing the minimum wage would be an absolute job killer.”
Washington, DC – The Club for Growth PAC issued the following statement today criticizing Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney for saying that he supports automatic increases in the federal minimum wage to keep pace with inflation.
“Indexing the minimum wage would be an absolute job killer,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Mitt Romney’s proposal is anti-growth and would harm our economy. It’s disappointing to hear that the leading candidate for the Republican nomination believes that the government can set the price of labor better than the free market.”
