Happy New Year (2013) to all!

Wow…..can they spare it?  Arizona is where I live…and I heard on the Telly that Minimum wage in this State has been given a rise.  Take a look at this:

……”And while this year’s 15-cent minimum-wage increase will mean a lot to struggling workers, the truth is that Arizona’s minimum wage remains well below the level needed to ensure that full-time work provides a path out of poverty. Contrary to myth, more than 78 percent of workers benefiting from Arizona’s minimum wage increase on Jan. 1 are adults over the age of 20. Eighty-five percent of these workers are putting in more than 20 hours per week, and 48 percent have at least some college education.

When large numbers of skilled adult workers find themselves relying on the minimum wage to make ends meet, then a national response is required in order to preserve the American Dream of upward economic mobility.

Congress has only acted three times in the last 30 years to raise the federal minimum wage. It’s time for a new level of leadership. It’s time for Congress to learn from Arizona’s example by raising and indexing the minimum wage.”

As you can see from this article, more income is not going to come from Congress, or anywhere else but from your own efforts.  I would like to think that you’ll want to have your own bargaining power that you can only get from having your own business, and from working for yourself!  Here’s a solution that I’ve found that I’d like to share with you.  You deserve more than minimum wage!!
