MINIMUM WAGE FACTS

The Tigard Chamber since last year has taken an no position on increasing minimum wage in Oregon.  We are concerned about the impact to business, our residents and our economy.  We are opposed to a significant increase in minimum wage for the following reasons.

1.Raising the minimum wage would raise costs for fixed income seniors with no ability to pay for increases 

2.Oregon economists estimate increasing Oregon’s minimum wage to $12/hr will cause a reduction of 52,000 jobs statewide
