A real issue we face in this country is how much people ought to make. Discussion goes on on the Glynn County Democrats' webpage and over at A La Gauche.
I'll open the minimum wage discussion with this: I think hard workers are getting the shaft when it comes to wages. But I'm not so sure that a minimum wage hike would alleviate those woes. As a Southern Liberal, my political belief structure is grounded in the development small business, and I fear what a minimum wage hike would do to small business. I consider them our most endangered employers. But I also realize that, especially in the South, an honest day's work must reap the reward of an honest day's pay.
