Simple solution to Walker's minimum wage minimum thinking

So…if Gov. Walker really believes that $7.25/hr. is a livable wage but serves no real purpose, and if he really believes in austerity and reducing government spending - - then he should cut his own pay to $15,080 from the current $144,423 annually.

If his pay went from about $70/hr. to $7.25 - - disregarding all the other benefits he hauls in like a mansion and drivers and pension eligibility and health care, etc. etc. - - he might understand that among what's important about the minimum wage is its insufficiency.

Unfortunately, I don't think doing so would have the desired impact. It's likely that Soctt Walker has made some "serious money" as a special interest sock puppet.

I vote for putting him on prison wages. He will get all he needs and then some for less than $1.00 per hour. National average is $0.92/ hour.

Oh and we get the extra benefit of ridding the state of wrong-way Walker.
