Don sez: Minnesota's Minimum Wage law has been stuck at $5.15/hour since 1997. We FINALLY raised it to $6.15/hour this year, which still wasn't enough. Sue Jeffers of Stub & Herb's was a leader in the fight AGAINST raising the minimum wage. Because of that, I have to wonder just how much she cares about the "little guy" after all, or whether it's just a case of wanting owners to keep as much money as they can.
