I have a long post to compose on the issue of minimum wage and ISD 709. It will require me taking a look at past meetings on youtube and at the moment I still have a couple hours before my son heads back to his doctoral work in St. Louis. I’ll even be shorted on that because I’m due to serve lunch at the Soup Kitchen at 11 this morning.
The previous post mentions our playground monitors. These are some of the hourly folks who get paid the least we can get away with to save the District some shekels. Alanna’s mention of them prods me to offer my thoughts on our low paid workers and the question of the District’s budgeting process.
