Concord Monitor: Time to raise the minimum wage

President Obama has proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour and indexing it for inflation. In New Hampshire, lawmakers will consider three bills raising the minimum wage, one to $8 per hour, one to $8.25, and one to $9.25. That last, most generous, proposal would be about 40 cents less per hour than a single person would have to earn to afford food, clothing and shelter in New Hampshire, according to a Massachusetts Institute of Technology study.
