Min­i­mum wage

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

When I learned that the gover­nor of Cal­i­for­nia had in­structed the comptroller to pay some state em­ploy­ees the min­i­mum wage un­til their rep­re­sen­ta­tives pass a bud­get, I was concerned about those em­ploy­ees try­ing to live — un­der the poverty level (for a sin­gle par­ent with a cou­ple of kids).

I also could not help but won­der what would hap­pen here in Texas, if the Texas Repub­li­can Party’s 2010 plat­form pri­or­ity of re­peal­ing the min­i­mum wage law is re­al­ized.
