ORLANDO, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – There’s a new push to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Attorney John Morgan says, he’s already working on a draft of a constitutional amendment that voters can vote on.

We caught up with several business owners and workers at a job fair on Friday who offered a variety of opinions about the proposal. Many of the business owners were skeptical.

“I don’t think it’s going to solve anything, because basic business you have to make money,” said security employer John Murphy, “and if you increase the minimum wage, you’re just going to increase the prices for everything and anything anyway so you’re really not changing the status quo.”

“When you run the numbers and look at the cost of doing business, that’s a very hard cost to absorb,” said Beryl Stephen, who owns a publishing company.
