Jim Hightower | The GOP’s minimum wage nuttiness

Raising the minimum wage above the poverty level, is not a question of economics even though it would be a big plus for our economy, but a question of morality. Who are we as a people, a nation – especially in the richest nation in the world – if we dishonor the work ethic with a wholly-unethical wage floor? It’s disgraceful, which is why three out of four Americans support raising the floor, including a majority of Republicans.Yet, the wage stays stuck at the unconscionable level of $7.25 an hour because Republican leaders are stuck on the low-wage dogma dictated by corporate elites.
