Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

What The Hell, Minnesota?

The above chart shows where a state's minimum wage is.

Green is above the national minimum wage, blue is the same as the national, yellow has no state minimum wage.

Red is pegged below it.

First of all, we can see, starkly, why wages are so low in Dixie.  And I think in Wyoming, they use a barter system or something.

But Minnesota?

While I realize that Minnesota is capable of producing a Michelle Bachmann, I never assumed it had labor practices that mirrored Arkansas.

They need to stress the "L" in DFL.
