Minimum Wage Debate!

Measure3Ad_300x250-1

Last week’s oil tax debate packed the house at the Loussac Library’s Wilda Marston Theater. This week, the series of debates host ed by Alaska Common Ground continues with Ballot Measure 3. Not as widely discussed as some, this measure is nonetheless important, and will decide if there will be an increase to Alaska’s minimum wage. 

This should not only be of interest to those on the left seeking to float all boats, but to those on the right who bemoan Americans’ dependence on government “handouts” in order to survive. This issue affects all Alaskans and all Americans. Be an informed voter, and spread your knowledge.

One Response to “Minimum Wage Debate!”
  1. mike from iowa says:

    What say we make that minimum wage, at the minimum,a livable wage and go up from there? We need to get beyond what a family of four can survive on and start deciding how much more that family needs to be comfortable on. If the guy at the top needs millions,then that family of four needs multiple millions.
