Hi All: Just found this story on Yahoo. It shows that seven states are raising the minimum wage due to increasing cost of living expenses.
It might not be much of a wage increase, but why do legislators get automatic cost of living increases every year, and the poorest of the workers in Massachusetts get nothing?
I would hope that organized labor in conjunction with social justice organizations in Massachusetts would champion this effort. I know that I would have been a champion of this cause if I was the State Senator from my district.
