NORTH CAROLINA —
North Carolina's labor commissioner wants to get rid of the minimum wage. In a questionnaire filled out for the North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation, Cherie Berry wrote she doesn't think the state should raise the minimum wage, adding it should be abolished altogether. Labor advocates are concerned. "It's really troubling that the labor commissioner, who's supposed to enforce wage laws, doesn't believe in the most basic wage law at all," said Marybe McMillian with the N.C. AFL-CIO. The labor commissioner does not set the minimum wage, but Berry could take her opinion to Washington, D.C. She's considering a bid for the U.S. Senate.
