Re: Congress preparing quadruple tax on oil

One must keep in perspective too. I'm not positve about Washington, but Oregon and California have state minimum wages higher than the national minimum wage. They also have state income taxes making take home smaller. There are other states that have higher state minimums than the national. National minimum also does not apply to some businesses that do not deal interstate.
As for my opinion, minimum wage is too high. Everytime it goes up chasing that holy grail, low wage earners get hurt.
