Let the spending spree begin

“People working 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, earning minimum wage bring home just $13,000. That’s just not enough.” --Gov. Rod Blagojevich, explaining why he'll raise the Illinois minimum wage from $6.50 to $7.50.

Which means they will now make $15,600 a year.

If Wal-Mart decides to give its CEO a dollar an hour raise, he'll make $17,544,800 next year.

I suppose the dollar raise is enough.
