Poll: Minimum wage boost will hurt MI small businesses most


By Jack Spencer | Michigan Capitol Confidential

By an overwhelming 75 to 11 percent margin, Michigan voters believe smaller, locally owned and family owned businesses will struggle more under a proposed minimum wage increase than would larger businesses.

The findings are from a poll of 1,460 respondents conducted April 9 by Mitchell Research & Communications. Fourteen percent of those surveyed said they were undecided as to whether small businesses would suffer more than big businesses.

Of those surveyed, 93 percent said they were “definitely” voting this November.
