Wages in the U.S.: public opinion on higher minimum wage if jobs will be lost 2013 This statistic presents the results of a phone survey by Reason-Rupe among American adults in December 2013. Survey respondents were asked whether they would favor an increased minimum wage if it caused employers to hire fewer workers or lay off existing ones. Some 57 percent of respondents said that in this case they would oppose a higher minimum wage.
