Raising the minimum wage only hurts if you raise it above what the minimum wage of the market is at. So, if you raise the minimum wage to $7.50 when the markets is at $8.00 it does nothing. If you raise the minimum wage to $9.00 when the market is at $8.00 then you start seeing price increases, reduction in hours, reduction in jobs, or all three.
