GAO Reports

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.

Tom Delay isn't going to help, either.

I don't know enough about Washington politics to get a handle on all of this.

I just hope Kilili will not support delay of the minimum-wage increase.

You mean you hope he won't support a delay a second time?
