yee hah!

(no keyboard, so forgive my gen. lack of caps...)

well, New Jersey has let its government shut down over budget debates, but PA soldiers on. most exciting to me is word that legislators managed to pass a minimum wage increase over the weekend! [just for fun, here's a graph comparing federal legislative salary increases to the static national minimum wage. thanks, Albert.] the details match the Senate version discussed here previously, meaning two steps to $7.15, with a slower ramping for very small businesses. fantastic! congrats to Mark Cohen, the minimum wage coalition, and all who made this happen.

in other news, briefly,
that's all for now. have a safe 4th.
