Mary Lazich: Student of History...Not!

The Republican State Senator from New Berlin is griping that Wisconsin approved a 22 cents-per-hour minimum wage in 1919.

And as another increase is coming, Lazich says that's where state economic woes began.

Since adjusted for inflation, that 22 cents hourly today would be a mere $2.70, which I presume Lazich thinks would be a fair, decent, relevant wage.

Note to readers: yes, you read that correctly. This is from one of 33 Wisconsin state senators.

Did she perform that calculation on executive pay?
