AskProfWolff: Why Rising Wages Do Not Necessarily Mean Price Increases

A patron of Economic Update asks: "There is an argument that states "if worker wages rise, the owner/board of directors will pass off the cost to the consumer which offsets the gains made in wages to the worker." Is this true?  How would argue against this?"

This is Professor Richard Wolff's video response.
