15달러 연방 최저임금 인상은 중소건설사에 큰 타격 Owner of construction company says $15 minimum wage would hurt small businesses the most

Owner of construction company says $15 minimum wage would hurt small businesses the most

According to a recent study, the minimum wage hike would cost 1.4 million jobs

Baltimore construction company owner Corina Morga says that the $15 federal minimum wage proposal will have larger consequences for small businesses versus large corporations.



 

   메릴랜드주  볼티모어 건설사 소유주인 코리나 모가는 15달러의 연방 최저 임금 제안은 중소기업이 대기업보다 더 큰 타격을 받을 것이라고 말했다.


"America's Newsroom"에 출연한 코리나 모가는 건설업자 그녀와 같은 회사들이 최저임금 급 상승에 따라 가격 경쟁력이 떨어지므로서 채용도 동결하게 될 것이라고 설명했다.




모가는 제안된 권한에 반대하는 주장은 소기업들이 이미 지역적으로 서로 경쟁하기 위해 직원들에게 더 나은 임금을 제공하고 있기 때문에 더 이상 임금 요구자들의 이슈가 아니라고 덧붙였다.


Morga는 제안된 권한에 대한 비판에서 개발자들이 현재 건설 입찰에서 누가 이길지를 결정하기 위해 계약자들과 임금 규모를 위한 자금을 협상하고 있기 때문에 지역적 차원의 사람들과의 협력이 필수적이라고 설명했다

Small businesses are hurt 'the most' by $15 minimum wage, says Baltimore business owner


A construction company owner from Baltimore, Maryland said Thursday that small businesses would be negatively impacted "the most" by a proposed $15 federal minimum wage.


During an appearance on "America’s Newsroom" Corina Morga, owner of C.R. Construction, explained that companies like hers would inherit the cost from the mandate, thus putting a hiring freeze on projects as small businesses are priced out of local contracts.




"When we are talking about wealth and equity for minority businesses like myself, you know small businesses are the way to get there," said Morga during an interview with Bill Hemmer. "We’re the economic drivers of this economy so to cut us out with this policy is insanity."

Morga added that an argument against the proposed mandate is not an argument against people attempting to earn a livable wage since small businesses are already providing better wages to employees in order to compete with each other locally.


In her criticism of the proposed mandate, Morga explained that cooperation with people on the local level is integral since developers currently negotiate funds for wage scales with contractors to determine who will win construction bids.  


One of the main proponents of the federal minimum wage increase is Sen. Bernie Sanders I-Vt., who called for the support of the mandate in a Senate budget hearing.


"Will you at this point commit to doing what President Biden and I and many others want to see happen," Sanders said. "And that is move to end starvation wages in America by raising the minimum wage over a period of several years."




On Wednesday, Democrats on the House Committee on Education and Labor approved a $15 minimum wage to be included in Biden’s coronavirus relief package.
