I'm in Florida, but I'm not into politics and I doubt I have the answer you're looking for. I run a small hobby farm. I've never worked for less than $15 and I've never paid anyone less than $15 to work for me. Florida is an expensive place to live.
I support raising the minimum wage. However, I'm worried that the big dogs will out compete by hiring foreign workers - legal or otherwise. I think most of us small timers will try to play by the rules, but will they do the same? I'm doubtful. What do you think about the wage hike, @floridaboy.
