Ted Mann of the New London Day has posted the full transcript of Linda McMahon’s original remarks about the minimum wage at a news conference. The link is http://www.theday.com/article/20100930/INTERACT010403/100939962.
When asked by Mann, “… Would you argue for reducing the minimum wage now?”, McMahon said:
“We have got minimum wages in states, we have got minimum wages in the [federal] government, and I think we ought to look at all of those issues in terms of what mandates are being placed on businesses and can they afford them. I think we should get input from our business community. We should listen to our small business operators and we should hear what it is they have to say and how it’s impacting their businesses and make some of those decisions.”
