A great article you might want to read about minimum wage. I’ll look around for some opposing views and get them face time too.

Minimum Wage: Yet Another Republican Retreat
Key points:
- Nobel laureate economist Milton Friedman and “the overwhelming majority of economists say that minimum-wage laws hurt the very people that proponents seek to help — minorities, teenagers and female heads of families.”
- Remember when Congress raised the minimum wage from $4.25 an hour to $4.75 an hour? From third quarter 1996 to first quarter 1997 (when the rate kicked in), teenagers, blacks and women heading families all experienced greater unemployment. And this during a period of over-all job growth!

I still think minimum wage is being used as a political pawn by both Republicans and Democrats.
