The economic case against minimum wage laws is simple. Employers pay a wage no higher than the value of an additional hour's work. Raising minimum wages forces employers to dismiss low productivity workers. This policy has the largest affect on those with the least education, job experience, and maturity.

Eliminating minimum wage laws would reduce unemployment and improve the efficiency of markets for low productivity labor.
