Re: “Prov­ince needs to show at least min­i­mum sense,” col­umn, Aug. 20

I en­joy columnist Chris Nel­son, and most times agree with him. How­ever, his ar­ti­cle in Mon­day’s Her­ald, on what he be­lieves are prob­lems caused by the min­i­mum wage in­crease, is one-sided.

How can any­one dis­agree with a min­i­mum wage of $15 an hour? How can any­one ex­pect a person to live on $15 an hour or less?

It’s un­rea­son­able and un­just. I be­lieve any­one who can af­ford to dine out and spend $25 or $30 or more for a meal could and would be will­ing to pay an ex­tra dol­lar or two for their meal. That would not be a rea­son to stay home.
