Hamburger flippers and others are demanding a minimum wage of $15 an hour. Meanwhile, the St. Paul’s Fire District (and probably others) are struggling to keep our homes and property safe for less than $10 an hour.

Don’t get me wrong. I am all for a decent wage for all, but I also believe our first responders should be at the top of the pay ladder. I just don’t believe that those who have worked for minimum wage for years at any McJob should make more money than the EMTs, firefighters or police officers who protect us and our property.
