CNN: “Minimum Wage Doesn’t Pay the Rent”
Imagine my surprise as I made a lunch stop today during my trip home to Tennessee to see this CNN report on the minimum wage. I happened to look up at an opportune moment to see the caption under the announcer (yeah, the scrolling caption) declare for all to see, “REPORT: Minimum wage does not pay the rent.” Oh wow. We need a CNN report before we can figure out that minimum wage doesn’t quite cut it. This is progress, folks.
I really wish there was a story on CNN.com outlining this monumental revelation (which is on par with the giving of the Ten Commandments), but apparently someone in Atlanta realized the silliness of stating the obvious.
