Just a quick heads up for us all thanks to Think Progress.org
Our illustrious Junior Senator Richard Burr was one of ten Senators voting to "delay" the Minimum Wage Bill in the Senate.
While we don't know his reasons to do so, they make be genuine (wanted more time for Senate or internal debate or more information on such a increase), we should take note that this issue will come to a head in a week's time.
So while we probably know how he and Dole will vote come casting time, we should make our best efforts to make our voices heard. A increase in minimum wage is the least we as a society can do to help level the playing field for so many American families.
