The National Employment Law Project is out with a survey of 70 years of data that shows higher minimum wages don't cost jobs. The report says to the contrary, employment has usually increased after increases in the federal minuimum wage. The National Employment Law Project looked at data from 1938-2009 re: federal minium wage hikes. Their report said "The results were clear: these basic economic indicators show no correlation between federal minimum-wage increases and lower employment levels."
