I shudder when I think about where we’d be with GWB / McCain / Romney.

‘FACT of the Day’

45% more, WOW!

~~~

personal thought:

I can’t help but wonder if someday, if there will be a migration, a mass migration, of people from the $7.25 ‘minimal wage’ to the ‘livable wage’ states.

Gawd only knows, I would look for a better opportunity!

Retirement: A third have less than $1,000 put away

Most people have very little tucked away for retirement, and many aren’t even trying to figure out how much they’ll need later in life, a new national survey reveals.

About 36% of workers have less than $1,000 in savings and investments that could be used for retirement, not counting their primary residence or defined benefits plans such as traditional pensions, and 60% of workers have less than $25,000, according to a telephone survey of 1,000 workers and 501 retirees from the non-profit Employee Benefit Research Institute and Greenwald and Associates.

Only 44% say they or their spouses have tried to calculate how much money they’ll need to save by the time they retire so that they can live comfortably in their golden years, the survey shows. Workers who have done calculations on what they need to save tend to have higher levels of savings than those who haven’t crunched the numbers.

600 Economists Now Back A $10.10 Minimum Wage

Via: Huffington Post

It’s about time to raise the minimum wage, at least according to 600 economists.

The group, which includes SEVEN Nobel laureates, attached their name to a letter released earlier this month by the Economic Policy Institute urging lawmakers to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. In the two weeks since the left-leaning think tank first published the letter, the list of signatories has grown from 75 to more than 600.

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would LIFT about 5 MILLION AMERICANS OUT of  POVERTY, according to a study released earlier this month by University of Massachusetts-Amherst economist Arindrajit Dube, who signed the EPI letter.
