Celebrate our victories
I have long believed that we spend too much time focused on our defeats and not enough on our victories. So, congratulations to the La Crosse coalition of Democrats, Republicans, Greens and Independents as La Crosse becomes just the third city in Wisconsin to raise the minimum wage. It will, by vote of the La Crosse City Council, go up by 55 cents on December 1, 2005, and another 80 cents on December 1, 2006.
This was the progressive community at its best led by the irrepressible Guy Wolf and his group of progressives. It shows what can be achieved with calls, door-to-door petition signing, and showing up at all the hearings.
So congratulations La Crosse progressives! We will chill the bubbly stuff for you at Bob Fest on September 10.
