Minimum Wage: How much?
by Tom Ferry


April 4, 2005

I want to conduct a poll to see what people think the minimum wage should be so I will start out and say I think it should be six bucks an hour. That is all I would pay anyone to start out in learning the auto body trade which I have thirty years experience in. You can advance quickly in this trade to earn very good money if you have a knack for it. Within five to eight years this could rise to over thirty dollars an hour - but you have to earn it. I hear some debate on the issue and I think a minimum wage is a good thing, any other suggestions on minimum wage amounts and why?
