Behold your freshman class 

Besides giving final exams next week, I've been hearing a few presentations lately about our incoming students. I'm given pause by this letter to our local paper, from a high school senior in Melrose.
I believe the minimum wage should rise to about $12 an hour.

This would help the economy because everything is expensive, and many people have to work more hours to pay for things.

Many people now have to work two jobs to survive in the 'real world.' Raising the minimum wage would help them and make them happy.

Yikes, well at least some day he'll grow up and understand the role of profits in a free society.
