Minimum wage opposition
While I'm glad that this bill is currently in trouble, I think it is for the wrong reason. The minimum wage is the worst thing for the poor, according to Milton Friedman. It promotes inflation, which negates itself and hurts those earning more than the minimum wage. I think other initiatives would provide a more sound benefit, such as employer credits for each new employee over the next 5 years (which would promote the creation of new jobs), or simply instituting a tax break without meddling with the minimum wage...Allow the free-market and the invisible hand to set the wage, not bureaucrats in Washinton.
