Saying No to the Minimum Wage

The federal minimum wage across these United States of America is $7.25.  The legally mandated minimum wage in Montana is $7.90 per hour. Neither makes much of a difference here in Bozeman, where you can't turn your head without spying a help wanted sign.

The answer is in having a strong economy competing for scarce labor.  You can't legislate that. If you don't like the minimum wage where you live, come to Montana. There's plenty of work and decent pay all around -- probably better scenery too.
