Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement after the New Hampshire House passed HB731, relative to the minimum hourly wage:

“An hourly minimum wage increase costs on employers and incentivizes large corporations to switch to self-service kiosks while small businesses suffer with increased labor costs. New Hampshire workers are empowered to negotiate higher pay with current market forces and Democrats simply do not understand the economics of their proposal. Every increase in the minimum wage hurts low-skilled workers and distorts the free market and Republicans are wise to oppose the establishment of a New Hampshire minimum wage.”
