    is that 40+ hours of minimum wage is not a living wage. All ships rise with the tide? Obviously not given the current economy.

    Where anyone gets work in this post New Deal country is getting sketchier and sketchier. I'm old chasing kids around learning two new skills a year and it's touch and go.

    But forcing the minimum closer to a living wage seems like a price that must be paid. And it would be a level playing field so your competitors would have the same issues.

    If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.
