Minimum Wage Bill Passed - Bush to Sign

In addition to the authorization for the Iraq war through September, Congress passed out some raises when it passed a minimum wage hike. According to an article in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Congress passes minimum wage hike. It would go from the current $5.15 an hour to $7.25 in three phases:
  1. to $5.85 two months after the bill is signed into law,
  2. $6.55 one year later,
  3. and to $7.25 the following year.

President Bush is expected to sign the bill perhaps as early as today, which would mean the bill would go into effect near the end of July.

I worked with Teresa and I know if she had not been thwarted in her career, she would have been correctly promoted to store manager, and amassed quite a bit of money over her career with Kohl's. I feel that she deserves every penny she receives.

This is not where "we just keep repeating the crap we hear" and you know it, if you side with the victim.

This is 2007, one specific case-- This woman was discriminated against. This greedy business deserves their punishment. Their ill-will toward a justified mother is deplorable.

Congratulations, Teresa.
