Wage Slaves Against Cherie Berry 2012

Republican candidate and incumbent North Carolina Commissioner of Labor, Cherie Berry, seeking support for her re-election from the North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation, responded when asked by the right-wing anti-labor organization if North Carolina should raise the minimum wage above the federal minimum of $7.25 that she thinks North Carolina "should abolish the minimum wage".

Cherie Berry is either clueless about the fact that minimum wage earners who work full-time, 40 hours a week, in one year earn only $15,080 - or she doesn't care. Either way, Cherie Berry should not be North Carolina's Commissioner of Labor.

Cherie Berry doesn't deserve to be Commissioner of Labor in North Carolina.
