Like, everything is possible in an election year. And hey, I'm not knocking it - minimum wage need a hike. At least this article mentions the legislature as an integral part of this whole law-making business.
The local news teaser I just say featured a bright-eyed woman saying "hear how the Governor rasied the minimum wage at 11!" He can do that by himself! That guy is a freakin' phenom. A super hero of the highest order - able to enact laws in a single, legislatureless bound.
I'm in no way saying a minimum wage hike isn't worth the good PR for Schwarzenegger. That's because a good deal is still a good deal, even when it isn't the perfect deal (I'm sure the Chamber folks disagree with my "good deal" usage, but that's no surprise).
Still, media soundbites and summaries are interesting things - especially during an election year. Of course, when isn't it an election year? Wonder what Phil will have to say . . . .
