The Salem Area Chamber of Commerce went on the record with an overwhelming no on raising the minimum wage, saying it would continue to vigorously oppose any efforts to artificially raise minimum wage in the state.

In a recent letter to the Senate Workforce and General Government House Business and Labor committees, the Salem Chamber stated its opposition to raising the minimum wage, siting that it placed the cost of a war on poverty on Oregon’s small businesses. It went on to say that it would send a message that Oregon is even less friendly to business, and that time and energy would be better spent attracting businesses and family wage jobs back to Oregon.
