Senate Candidates Split On Minimum Wage Hike

June 27, 2014, 6:14 AM

Senate Candidates Split On Minimum Wage Hike
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Two of the four candidates for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Tim Johnson support a minimum wage hike. The other two oppose a state ballot initiative looking to raise it from $7.25 per hour to $8.50.

Independent Gordon Howie says the real problem is the shrinking value of the dollar, and increasing the minimum wage doesn't accomplish anything.

Independent Larry Pressler says he supports increasing the minimum wage as it's difficult for people to earn enough money to take care of their families.

Democrat Rick Weiland supports the measure, saying it goes beyond teens flipping burgers to adults trying to raise families while working multiple jobs.

Republican Mike Rounds says he opposes the state ballot initiative because it ties future increases to the cost of living.
