pros ad cons are different for the two parties
for employers..pros are
1)lesser cost of production
3)greater market share with less price because of less cost
4)better command over its employee because minimum wage employee are individually weak in protesting their employee
5)employer can asses about their expenditure on employee
and the cons are
1)fails to attract quality employee

3)quick mobility of employee to other better avenues
so far pros of employee is concerned they will get a guarantee income which will not fall below that minimum level
there are lots of corn
2)there will be class division
3)there will be political instability
