It is interesting to see the Grand Forks Herald Editorial Board oppose the raise to the minimum wage with the same old tired rationale. As I read my $2.00 copy of the West Central Tribune, the Minnesota Opinion editorial says it's not the right time.

Life is too hard to pay our workers a living wage. Instead, we should wait for when the world has fewer problems. Like maybe after we are dead.

Remember that newspaper in 2021 that now costs $2.00? I wonder why the kids today don’t buy a paper?

Oh, right. They can’t afford to pay their bills, so they can’t afford a local paper. I wonder why?
