The headline in the October 30 Arizona Daily Star read: “Wage surge biggest in 20 years”. The reason -- the free market system does work. The only thing government intervention does is throw a monkey wrench into the ecology of economics.
At the same time that lowest paid workers are experiencing the biggest gains. A special interest group is throwing a monkey wrench into Tucson’s economic ecology with Prop 206 that Tucson City voters will decide in tomorrow’s City of Tucson’s election ballot.
Prop 206 touts raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. If that was truly what Prop 206 is really about, the language could have been spelled out in 1 paragraph, not 6 pages of unneeded and burdensome regulations. It’s those regulations that will undoubtedly stifle entrepreneurs from starting their own business while reducing unemployment for workers entering the job market for the very first time.
Prop 410 is also on the Tucson ballot and it is simply worded and easy to understand. It just proposes raising the pay for the Tucson Mayor and Council. The choice is yours.
There are also elections for Tucson City council members in Wards 3, 5 and 6.

“...if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded”.
