Check out the lead story... have your wages gone up like your winter heating bills? Probably not if you heat with propane. Read the main story at the top of the page... "Propane: Cold Weather Headache; Cost of propane nearly tripled:"
Why hasn't the government stepped in to put an end to this corporate rip-off? This is just plain old price-gouging... outright robbery... monopoly price-fixing of the worst kind.
I sent in this "Letter to the Editor" to Northern Watch:
Probably not if you heat with propane.
The Northern Watch's lead front-page story (2/1/2014) "Propane: Cold Weather Headache; Cost of propane nearly tripled:"
Former Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party Governor Floyd B. Olson warned Minnesotans in 1934, "If we fail to bring the energy industry under public ownership future generations will be paying through the nose to light and heat their homes."
When is "cost-of-living" going to enter into these discussions about the Minimum Wage given the fact that home heating bills are one of the primary "cost-of-living" factors?
