The only business owner who testified Tuesday against a New Hampshire Senate bill that would increase the state’s minimum wage, said he supports increasing it.
The main beef of Tom Boucher, owner of the Great NH Restaurants chain, was that the tipped wage would go up with it.
In fact, everyone else – aside from one lobbyist – told the Senate Commerce Committee that the primary problem with Senate Bill 10 is that it does not increase the wage even more.
And that lone lobbyist, Bruce Berke, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business New Hampshire chapter – urged a “slower growth in the minimum wage.”
