CBS Discovers That Mandatory Wage Hikes Can Kill Jobs


<p><em>More in the <a href="…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog. </em></p>

<p>Introducing a report on Tuesday&#39;s <em>CBS This Morning</em> that examined the negative impact of forcing a wage hike on small businesses, co-host Norah O&#39;Donnell declared: &quot;A theater drama is playing out this morning in Los Angeles. <strong>The country&#39;s largest stage actors union votes on a plan forcing tiny theaters to pay everyone the minimum wage....many performers say getting a raise will do them more harm than good.&quot;</strong></p>

<p>Correspondent John Blackstone explained that &quot;Actors&#39; Equity, the union that represents some 6,500 stage performers in L.A.&quot; was &quot;pushing for its members to be paid California&#39;s minimum wage, $9 an hour.&quot; He then noted the controversy: <strong>&quot;But many actors say they don&#39;t want the money. They fear getting paid will mean curtains for many of L.A.&#39;s small theaters.&quot;</strong></p>
