    Iowa Senator Thinks $9 Minimum Wage is NOT Enough


    "In an op-ed for USA Today, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) says that a $9 per hour minimum wage is not enough. He says, “While I was heartened to hear President Obama make the minimum wage a centerpiece of his State of the Union Address, I believe that his proposal of $9 per hour does not go far enough to ensure that working families can make ends meet.”

    At least he's on the right track......if $9 will help the poor out a little bit.....the question remains why stop at $9. Why not $50 an hour or at least equal to the highest paid union wage. That would save money in the sense that there would no longer be any need to pay union dues.
