What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton manages to get over the 50% hump in his approval rating...

Billionaire Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton is all smiles these days because polls show he has a 57% approval rating.

But... Were Minnesotans satisfied with Dayton's refusal to raise the Minimum Wage? I bet if Mark Dayton had to rely on a Minimum Wage job for his income instead of the billions he inherited from his family whose wealth has been derived from paying workers poverty wages he wouldn't be smiling.

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton manages to get over the 50% hump in his approval rating... but what do poverty waged employees get? A kick in the ass from this Democratic Governor.
