The more I think about this minimum wage issue, maybe I am just a greedy capitalist and don't understand the economics of bubble up and only understand the politics of trickle down.
Instead of $8.50 an hour...a sum Legislators would not allow their sons or daughters to work for....why not make the minimum a true living wage....Say $20 an hour.
That's $800 a week or $40,000 a year. That's still well below the average public sector employee, but its a start at reaching the American Dream.
I think the Silver proposal passes as the Governor is playing both sides on this one but will throw the bone to the left when all is said and done. There will be a couple GOP Senators crossing over too.
What do you think ?
