Response to commentary on minimum wage posted Monday

Note: The letter posted below is in response to this commentary by Jim Killebrew:
Government-mandated minimum wage


To the editor:

Although I see where Jim would have a problem with a higher minimum wage, what he is not saying is the minimum wage for servers and the food industries is around $2.30, not $7.25, and that is set up so their tips can be taxed.

McDonald's did a study on the minimum wage being raised to $15 an hour, and it would add a cost of 64 cents to a quarter-pound hamburger meal.

I disagree with this article. Not all the facts are truthful.
