Montana Senate Votes to Raise Minimum Wage

Montana definitely went through a sea change in the last election, with Dems taking over the Senate. The result: a Senate vote to raise the state minimum wage to $6.25 per hour. Next, we'll be seeing Mississippi joining the bandwagon. Actually, as Josh Marshall noted today in regards to resistance to social security cuts in "red states," there's no reason those states shouldn't be supporting progressive economic legislation. They've got a lot of poor folks who would be helped.
