From Daily Kos.com where I write under "Nailkeg"
If you don't believe our Voice counts, then read on. First, you must realize that I am 73 and never thought of myself as an activist. But for the last year, I have attended numerous walks and 'meet ups' for raising the minimum wage in Kansas City, Mo. Guess what? The city council just approved a $13.00 dollar an hour raise for the minimum wage in KCMO. I know, it takes a few years to fully come into effect, but almost immediately a dollar will be added and I don't know if any other city in Mo that has taken this step.
