Mayor Kevin Johnson announced a task force is recommending the Sacramento minimum wage increase to $12.50 an hour by 2020.

$12.50 in five years seems more like a punishment than a reward.

Families earning low wages cost local taxpayers in the form of services.

Forbes says Wal Mart employees cost Taxpayers 6.2 billion in public assistance.

$12.50 in 2015 is reasonable, in five years is outrageous. Leaders need a reality check.
