Minimum Wage, Paper Routes, and the Strib (Part II)

SwanBlog is posting every day in May!

The Star Tribune is giddy with the news that state legislators have agreed to an increase in the minimum wage. The Strib tells us that this is a "recognition that the lot of low-income Minnesotans should be improved."

What is interesting is that Minnesota's largest newspaper pays its delivery carriers less than the proposed minimum wage in some cases. Moreover, the kid on the bicycle has been replaced by adults with cars, some of whom use the paper route as their main source of income. C'mon Strib, join the party!
