Minimum Starvation

by Regis Boff

I am feeling a little guilty about this minimum wage arrangement. I appreciate why we Democrats love to bring it up every election cycle. It makes poor people imagine we love them. OK, I get that.
What I miss is exactly who gets helped by all this feverish legislation. The raise we are proposing is still a starvation level subsistence. It is more a stay of execution than a reprieve from continued suffering.

We are rushing into the ruined lives of the miserable, wearing balloon hats and big red noses shouting,”There you go, we saved you again. Now get out there and vote!”
