Minimum Wage Increase: Who will Pay?

AT HIS RECENT SOTU SPEECH PRESIDENT OBAMA PROPOSED TO INCREASE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO $9.00. 
WHO WILL PAY FOR THIS INCREASE AND WHAT WILL THE INCREASE DO TO BUSINESS?  MOST BUSINESSES WILL SIMPLY PASS THE ADDITIONAL COST ON TO THE CONSUMER, THEREBY RAISING THE COST OF ALMOST EVERYTHING YOU BUY.  AND THOSE BUSINESSES WHO PROFIT MARGIN WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO RAISE PRICES, MAY CLOSE OR LAY OFF PEOPLE.  ADDITIONALLY, SOME BUSINESSES WILL NOT EXPAND.  WHEN WAGES GO UP THERE ARE ALWAYS CONSEQUENCES.
