July’s minimum wage increase could effect college attendance

Minimum wage is set to increase from $6.55 an hour to $7.25 on July 24th. The Wall Street Journal article “Mandating Unemployment, congress prepares to kill more jobs”, from July 13, 2009, raises the question of who this raise will benefit, and who it will hurt. According to the article, David Neumark, an economist from University of California, Irvine, believes “the 70-cent per-hour minimum wage hike this month would kill ‘about 300,000 jobs for those between the ages of 16-24’”.  As of June, 2009, 24% of American teens are already unemployed.

Taxpayer March on Washington Scheduled for September 12, 2009

Washington, DC –  Over the last six months the national debt skyrocketed by nearly $3 trillion. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, our national debt will more than double by 2019.  Americans will have to pay for this stratospheric spending spree first by begging foreign nations to buy our bonds, and later through higher taxes and inflation.

Assessing Broadband in America

In the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama earlier this year, a provision was made for a “national broadband deployment strategy” to increase the penetration of high speed internet throughout the country.  To explore their options, the FCC has begun a review of the current broadband policies.  Many have used comparisons between the United States and other nations as a reference for new broadband polices.  Not surprisingly, these advocates suggest that to remain in international competition, a greater degree of government intervention is required; however, upon further analysis, America has one of the strongest bases of independent internet stability worldwide.  The FCC would be wise to avoid aggressive new regulatory policies toward broadband deployment.
