Minimum wage hike could hurt workers, York County business owners say

As President Obama pushes for an increase in the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour, many small business owners in York County are wondering how they will make it if a raise is mandated. Many are sympathetic to an increase but said there’s not much room in their budgets to make adjustments if labor costs rise dramatically. As a result, they might have to layoff workers, raise prices and stop hiring people with little experience.
