Good morning Roy,

I should look at forming a business and give myself a raise!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Roy Kelley - We still have a long way to go when it comes to minimum wages in relation to what things actually cost to buy, especially health care. But every bit counts!

Easier access to vocational schools will give more people the skills needed to command higher salaries than minimum wage.

Good information to get out to local business owners. I think our minium wage in Washington state is now $11.50  - makes one wonder how people can make it. D

HI Roy Kelley - Not quite sure why there is an arbitrary cut-off of 50 employees.  There will be some businesses that will do their best to hold the number of employees to 50 or less. They could potentially save $500 a week. This gives the business an incentive not to hire. Just my opinion.

Everybody's getting wage increases except real estate agents who are getting beat up over commission Roy. Interesting.
