The Pennington County Democrats forward this poster on who stands to benefit from raising the minimum wage. (Hint: it's not just teenagers buying video games!)
That poster boils down a boo-yah busload of research from the Economic Policy Institute on what really happens when we raise the minimum wage. The South Dakota Democrats' ballot initiative to raise our minimum wage can't be dismissed as some sop to people we can belittle. Raising the minimum wage helps working people, your neighbors, folks putting food on the table. And whether you're 17, 37, or 70, you deserve a fair wage for the time and liberty you surrender to the boss.
Penn Dems, SD Dems, keep walking those petitions!
