By George J. Bryjak

Republican congressional candidate Matt Doheny recently stated that raising the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.80 an hour "runs counter to the people's desires." You can bet the farm he didn't talk to the people who are working for that wage. Assuming a 40-hour week, $7.25 an hour translates to an annual salary of $15,080. If the congressional seat Doheny seeks paid $15,000 a year, he would be screaming to the high heavens that the paltry sum is not a liveable wage, and he would be correct.
