一个 俄亥俄 restaurant owner is warning that any hikes in the minimum wage now will only hurt small businesses more.

President Biden signed executive orders Friday that would increase food aid, protect job seekers on unemployment and clear a path for federal workers and contractors to obtain a $ 15 hourly minimum wage, as part of his coronavirus relief package.

While Biden’s action on the minimum wage only affects federal employees, he does support a $ 15 hourly wage for all workers.
