What matters is "feeling good" about yourself. Raising the minimum wage makes liberals feel good. Who cares is some geek loses his job?
a pretty firm grasp of the realities of economics. Perchance his lack of the degree may account for that (from MANY prior personal observations of PhDs and their atrophied reality grasping "capabilities").

As a teenager who received the minimum wage at a summer job at a movie theater last year, I'm disappointed to see Congress moving toward raising the minimum wage [front page, July 29]. When the New York state minimum wage rose to $6 an hour, the theater where I worked was very reluctant to hire the usual extra summer staff because of the high cost. With a federal minimum wage as high as $7.25, as the proposed legislation would require by 2009, I probably would have lost my summer job.
