According to data released by Paychex and IHS, there is no clear evidence to prove that a raised minimum wage kills jobs. In fact, the opposite trend is occurring.
San Francisco, which has one of the highest minimum wages in the United States at $10.74 an hour, has faster job growth than any other major U.S. city. Washington is another example of this, with the highest state minimum wage, but the quickest job growth acceleration.
