Minimum Wage Rally Today In CdA

From Kootenai County Democrats: "Idaho ranks last in the nation in family wages and that’s not good enough! It’s time for working families to finally get some attention and get some value out of the folks they send to Washington, D.C. A rally to promote an increase in the minimum wage is scheduled at 3 p.m. today at Riverstone Park in Coeur d'Alene. The rally will feature Shirley Ringo, candidate for Congress - Idaho District 1, and Nels Mitchell, candidate for United States Senate-Idaho. The economic recovery has left many working Idahoans behind and struggling to support families on insufficient wages. If families can't support themselves, they can't support local businesses. These rallies let the people of Idaho know that we can elect leaders who put Idaho families and businesses over the interests of wealthy, well-connected lobbyists."

Question: Anyone out there who doesn't think Idaho's $7.25/hour minimum wage (same as federal minimum wage) is pathetic?
