Let’s raise the minimum wage, but do it with moderation

To the Editor:

— This argument over minimum wage is ridiculous. I would like to see those legislators try living on $7.25 per hour.

But I will agree that the proposed increase is a bit much. Why does the increase have to be almost double when a moderate raise would suffice?

I am a minimum wage earner and would be completely satisfied with $9 per hour.

What do you think, legislators? Let’s compromise Thats what we elected you for. Try doing your job for a change. .

I am a minimum wage earner and a taxpayer, also a registered voter with a good memory.
