Who Pays for the Minimum Wage?

From Michigan's Mackinac Center....

"When a business experiences increasing inventories, raising prices is the last thing it should do to resolve the problem. The same principle applies to labor. When a state has a surplus of unemployed workers, raising the price of labor simply causes firms to hire fewer workers. Consequently, unemployment increases."
