Letter: Living high off the hog at $8.15 an hour

Mr. Jordan, since you are so glad that the big tax cut passed, do you think it would be nice if you would introduce a bill to increase the minimum wage to $10 an hour. Also include time-and-a-half for overtime along with other labor issues.

I don’t know if anyone has ever told you that $8.15 an hour is a joke in this day and age. You think you could live high off the hog on such wages? Try it some time. Let me know how you fair. You should represent all in your district!
