Letter: Minimum wage

March 4, 2014 

They say that President Obama's plan to raise the national minimum wage would likely cause at least 500,000 job losses. Hmmm -- Obama's economic adviser says that raising the minimum wage will give workers the freedom to work less. Perhaps the Obama administration has finally stopped telling whoppers.

What do you think, folks? And if you young'uns believe this, Michelle Obama was correct -- "knuckleheads."
