Don't get fooled again. Let the people speak!

Don't be fooled by the Legislature's Minimum Wage Bill.  Ten years ago they passed one to keep an initiative off the ballot, then gutted the law a year later.  Even George W. Bush knew "Fool me once.."


All this is fine as far as it goes. But we need to be more ambitious. We should be raising the federal minimum to $15 an hour. Here are seven reasons why: 1.

Some of those productivity gains should go to workers at the bottom. 2. $10.10 isn’t enough to lift all workers and their families out of poverty.
