Do you feel Lawrence should have a living wage?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 15, 2003
“Definitely, because if we don’t, then how can we live?”
“Why wouldn’t they? If you don’t have a living wage, then anyone with a first-time job will have to work full-time and not be able to take care of their kids.”
“No. If they do, then prices go up, and cost of living goes up. It will have the same effect over and over again and cause inflation.”
“Yes, I think there should be a living wage, but I don’t want Lawrence to turn into a preppy Johnson County, with everyone making a lot of money.”
