President-elect Joe Biden released a proposal saying that he will call on Congress to boost the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour from the current $7.25 per hour. 

Biden’s plan will all but destroy small businesses in America.

“There should be a national minimum wage of $15 an hour,” Biden said. “No one working 40 hours a week should live below the poverty line.”

The reality is with a mandatory $15 minimum wage many small businesses across will either lay off workers or lower the number of hours employees can work.
