Minimum wage moves up a mimimum amount — 1 Comment

  1. This article reminded me of some reading I did a few years ago on the working poor — in fact one book was named just that: the Working Poor in America as I recall. Your cartoon was especially good here and fitting — the guy below in the ditch just keeps working harder and digging a deeper hole for himself, the other guy above keeps telling him that working harder is the only way out, yet he could help pull this guy out from the hole. He could find a way, such as throwing a rope down and pulling him out, if not by himself, with his friends.

    With this thought in mind I share an infographic I found on Canada’s working poor. See http://tvo.org/whypoverty/info/working-poor
