Basic Costs Have Increased Dramatically In The Last Decade

The Center for American Progress has a article explaining how costs have risen since the last minimum wage increase. According to their numbers, “dinner” has gone up 39.72%, electricity is up 25.02%, and gasoline up 135.20%.

The article may concentrate on those making minimum wage, but these costs have risen for all of us. Yuck!
