Senator Charles Grassley does not support increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. For the Iowa Republican to support a minimum wage increase there would need to be some help for small businesses, perhaps with the tax code. Grassley says he doesn’t want to see fewer jobs for teenagers seeking their first jobs and he states teenage unemployment is high. According to the U.S. Department of Labor unemployment rates for 16 to 19-year-olds across the nation was nearly 21% last month.
