Increase the minimum wage

July 23, 2012
Daily Press

EDITOR:

We all know that many of the jobs that have not been outsourced by Romney and the rest of the 1 percent are likely not to include benefits and are often on the lower end of the wage scale.

Since the tax breaks for the rich have not been reinvested or used to create jobs here in the United States, I think it's about time that we all recognize that well paid workers create jobs when they spend their hard earned pay. The rich claim to create jobs, but they only use their riches to buy tax breaks for themselves from folks like Dan Benishek. They do not use their tax breaks to create jobs.

So let's be clear. We need to raise the minimum wage so that more money is circulating in our economy, instead of being parked offshore in Switzerland or the Cayman Islands. If he truly cares about an economy that works for everyone, Congressman Benishek ought to support an increase in the minimum wage.
