Eddie Vogt’s recent letter about the winners and the losers at the Legislature is incorrect. In addition to the winners he mentioned, (primarily fast-food restaurants), he left out all Nevadans who will benefit from our governor’s decision not to raise the minimum wage.
The thousand of low-wage earners who he thinks are the big losers are actually winners because they get to keep their jobs. They haven’t lost a thing nor would they have gained anything if the governor had agreed to a higher minimum wage. Everyone’s buying power, including the low-wage earners, would have decreased.
I congratulate Gov. Brian Sandoval’s wise decision in this matter. Obviously he did his homework.
