We hear the GOP argue how raising the minimum wage on the wealthy will become job killers, how “job creators” and will leave the state. Fortunately, the GOP and other right-wingers have been proven wrong; Mark Dayton, the Governor of Minnesota has increased the minimum wage to $9.50, brought unemployment down to 3.6%, the lowest in the nation and the state is ranked as the 5th fastest growing economy with a $ billion budge surplus. It’s not surprising that the GOP has and will continue to be proven wrong, but it is the Democrats that needs to be more aggressive on this issue; with the success of Mark Dayton on improving Minnesota economy and the lives of the citizens, as well as the other 13 states that are seeing the same results, it is enough for the Democrats to aggressively push this issue, which can help them win in the 2016 elections.
