I had no idea that Marxism was still a threat to our way of life. But as my Friday column notes, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce is supporting a bill to abolish the state’s already rock-bottom $2.65 minimum wage, with a chamber lobbyist saying that wages should be set by the market, not the “socialist teachings of Karl Marx.”
This race to the bottom would place our state among such economic powerhouses as Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee. Impressive company.
Is it such a radical idea to think that someone who works full time for a living should be able to earn enough to make a living?
