A raise in the minimum wage NOT!

Nathan Newman has the details on the GOP plan to raise the minimum wage by $1.10 an hour. Read the plan though and it really is a plan to destroy worker rights and lower pay for many workers, including some of the already most underpaid workers among us. Atrios has a veiled reference up to Rick Santorum's staff hating us, I assume that means liberal activists, on Monday. Stayed tuned for details, worker rights are important, as is valid and actual minimum wage; we should do all we can to protect them both.
