Raising the Minimum Wage in Mississippi?

This seems to be one of the most talked about topics early this legislative session (excepting the grumbling about Taxes, MAEP and the Democrats with their Day 1 budget bills). House Bill 237 raising the minimum wage from the federally mandated $5.15 to $6.25 and then $7.25 in 2008 passed the house early this week only to be held on a motion to reconsider before it was released to the senate. Linked below is the most recent article from the Clarion Ledger regarding this hot topic. LINK

We welcome any discussion on this or other topics.
