To the editor:
Seattle raised the minimum wage to $15, while Thom Tillis and the Republican Party refuse to raise it to $10.10 as U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, D-North Carolina, supports. Who’s right?
We had a “Demand Side” economy under FDR for 45 years, and at the end, the unemployment rate was under 5 percent and the debt was under $1 trillion. We have had a “Supply Side” economy since Reagan introduced it in 1980. The unemployment is more than 6 percent and the debt is more than $17 trillion.
