Letter: Idaho wages

January 18, 2014 

"Lowest wages in the U.S."

Regarding the headline in the Jan. 4 paper, congratulations to our governor and Legislature. Through consistent union busting, unwillingness to raise the minimum wage and sponsorship of right-to-work, they have won Idaho's race to the bottom. Their efforts have been successful in attracting those seeking the lowest-paid workforce in the country.
