Just for informational purposes, the United States’ federal minimum wage was $7.25 in 2009.
For comparison, here is what a civilized nation just did:
Voters in Geneva, Switzerland, have agreed to introduce a minimum wage in the canton that is the equivalent of $25 an hour
So, it’s 2020, another in the unbroken quadrennial string of “most important election of our lives” (if you listen to the DNC, DCCC, et al). Go vote blue no matter who…’cause that should fix things…right?
This is where we are, friends. And have been for a while.
