Obama quer aumentar salários dos pobres. Warren Buffett acha que salários maiores levam os empresários a contratar menos.
Obama has proposed raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour as one way to lift Americans out of poverty. While some research shows that a minimum wage hike would boost the economy and eventually create jobs, some argue that a minimum wage hike would discourage businesses from hiring workers because of increased payroll costs. Buffett noted in his interview with CNBC that “there’s tradeoffs on the minimum wage and you can do all these studies but they don’t know.” (Huffpost News)
