    M Kindseth silence is not agreement. I simply am not prepard to defend any minimum wagem increase. I seldom agree with anything Mr Hansen puts forth. I would in the meantime like to point out that he does say "In North Dakota, fast-food jobs are paying an average of $15 per hour in a state where there is a shortage of unskilled labor." This would give the impression that raising the minimum wage even beyond the San Jose $10 rate doesn't drive the business to bankruptcy. I mean just living in North Dakota warrants a higher wage.

    Steve: I cant believe so many are so unknowledgeable about all the ramifications of the minimum wage issue. Hopefully the silence is from those who understand your essay.
