CORRECTION
Last week we mistakenly reported that lobbyists, representing minimum wage workers who contributed heavily to lawmakers' reelection campaigns, used their clout to force a robust increase in the minimum wage. In fact these workers have no lobbyists, no money to contribute and no clout to use, and the bill favors business interests. We apologize for any confusion resulting from the error.
