Setting the record straight



My beef has always been that employees of businesses often spend years working for minimum wage with no chance of ever getting ahead.

Just to set the record straight, my father operated a small printing business for all of his working life. My university degrees in political science and economics have taught me how the world works and that small business is the backbone of society.

My beef has always been that employees of businesses, big and small, often spend years working for minimum wage with no chance of ever getting ahead, much less making ends meet.

To me, it seems immoral.
