    UAW has no choice...IMO

    UAW loves when minimum wage goes up, this is almost an automatic raise for union workers at contract time. The new contract must give a minimum raise to hourly workers of the amount the minimum wage goes up, approximately $2.50/hour. If union employees are to stay ahead or equal to 'poor classification' they must get a raise at least as much as poor people get. In the end, minimum wage workers do not benefit from a government mandated increase in wages, every thing they buy will now cost more.
