The Saipan Tribune's Sunday edition reported on the newly released GAO report on wages in the CNMI. You can read a summary and access the full report here.
I hate the CNMI's position against further increases in the minimum wage. Tony Pelligrino made an important point in one of his editorials lately--that had we but stuck to our plan in the early 1990's, we would already be at a comparable minimum wage. Delay isn't going to help. It hasn't helped in the past and it isn't going to help now.
We need these small minimum wage increases.
