Small business owners nationwide are recovering from the Great Recession and slowly fortifying their businesses. It is the jobs these small businesses provide and the consumers they serve that keeps our recovery moving. Entrepreneurs nationwide recognize we need to foster this trend. According to a national scientific opinion poll conducted for Small Business Majority, small business owners widely agree our federal minimum wage should increase so that small business employees and consumers have more money in their pockets.

More than two-thirds of small business owners support increasing our federal minimum wage—up from the $7.25 an hour rate that took full effect in 2009—and adjusting it yearly to keep pace with inflation.
