Raising the minimum rage: A New Year’s revolution

A tongue-tied TV analyst was talking about salaries some time ago, and she referred to “a rise in the minimum rage.” That would have been a perfect Freudian slip for an America ready to storm its Bastilles.

If we don’t wield pitchforks now, our democracy may soon become serfdom.... Read more»
