TKC MUST READ!!! AMID UPCOMING VOTE: KANSAS CITY MINIMUM WAGE INCREASE ORDINANCE OPPOSITION GROWS LOUDER!!!

TKC may not agree with everything in the column but it's undoubtedly an EXCELLENT summary of the arguments against this political move that's far more consistent and well-reasoned than recent flip-flopping from Mayor Sly James on the subject . . .
