But in some companies it is astronomical. In addition, firms that already pay a decent wage and realize these kinds of efficiencies should not have to radically alter their bids to comply with the Executive Order. Specifically, quantity decreases will be small and most of the cost increase can be passed onto the consumer if demand is inelastic. In this moment, an increase in minimum wages is very effective in raising domestic demand and tax revenue without inflationary pressures, as there is still room in the production capacity and investments ramp up to widen it. Conversely, quantity decreases will be large and most of the cost increase will be absorbed by producers if demand is elastic. If firms are selling their output in competitive markets, labor demand is largely determined by the marginal product of labor.

Simply put, workers tend to respond negatively when they go from making above the minimum wage to making minimum wage, even if their actual wages haven't changed. Our approach in the manufacturing industry is, to first talk about lean process setups and best-practice approaches that are already operationalized and can be easily adopted as pragmatic first steps.

Labor market outcomes such as wages, the number of vacancies, and the number of unemployed are determined by these three building blocks—the vacancy-supply curve, the wage-setting schedule, and the Beveridge curve. This debate can be clarified with the aid of economic theories that analyze the effects of the minimum wage on the labor market. Lower wages require entry-level employees to work more than one job, leaving them with little free time and higher levels of stress.
