Raise the Minimum Wage, Lower the Corporate Rate

Senator Sky Damon thinks Mitt Romney was right in supporting huge tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy. The Senator would continue cutting taxes for these most important Americans, but he also recognizes that it gives the appearance that Republicans don't care about the middle class and the poor.

Therefore, The Senator proposes raising the minimum wage from the already generous $7.25 an hour to $9.25—an hour! This is a whopping nine dollar increase from the 1938 minimum wage of $.25.

Then, to help our struggling employers, two dollars of this increase would be given back to corporations to help defray the expense of the increased salary burden. This is compassionate conservatism we can believe in.
