I'm home sick, with a cold. But even if I had felt fit the news about the House vote on the minimum wage would have brought me low. After all, nine years without an increase has let inflation erode the minimum wage to shocking levels. $5.15 today had the buying power of less than $4 when the last increase took place.
I'm speechless. Thanks to Jeremy Burton for bringing this out.
