The Democrats, their union supporters, and liberals in general are making a hard and concerted push for an increase in the minimum wage. President Obama mentioned the subject prominently in his State of the Union address on Tuesday night and even promised to take executive action to increase the minimum wage federal contractors must pay their workers starting in 2015. While Republicans and small business owners are sure to resist this push, it is important that everyone on both sides debates the issue with the correct facts. Much of what you hear about the minimum wage is completely untrue.

Thirsty workers can now sneak in extra drinks at the office Christmas party using a clever necktie – which doubles as a flask.
Despite looking like a standard striped tie wearers of the FlaskTie can fill a hidden flask with half a pint of their favourite tipple.
And if you find yourself parched in a lengthy meeting, you can simply take the back part of the tie and sip from the well disguised nozzle.
The owner of a beauty school forced her students to examine boils on her buttocks, trim her pubic hair with scissors used on customer’s hair and expelled them without refunding the $10,000 fee, according to a lawsuit.
Lead plaintiff Breanne Walden and 16 others – including two employees at Dahl’s College of Beauty in Great Falls – filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, against school owners Douglas and Barbara Daughenbaugh and Philip Belangie.
The complainants, all women, accuse the trio of incompetence and failing to address sexual harassment allegations.

A four-bedroom, two-bathroom Arizona home valued at $125,000 is being auctioned for bids starting at one penny.
Owner Todd Talbot believes that although penny auctions exist for electronic goods, it is the first time a house has been sold in this way.
‘It is the first time I’m aware of a home being sold on penny auction,’ he told ABC. ‘Normally it is for other kinds of products like iPads.’
Talbot, creator and owner of website iBidForAcent.com, describes the 1,749 square foot property as a completely remodelled, ‘turn-key’ home, just waiting for the winning bidder to move in.
He bought the home for $80,000 in January and invested $20,000 in redeveloping it.
The refurbished home features a wood-burning fireplace, a newly-fitted kitchen with granite worktops and fresh carpets.
Bidders can only bid in one cent increments, and, with less than 20 hours to go, the highest bid so far is $2.37.

Now seems an unlikely time for handing out bonuses at bankrupt Solyndra LLC, but that’s the plan of company attorneys intending to dole out up to a half-million dollars to persuade key employees to stay put.
Nearly two dozen Solyndra employees could receive bonuses ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 each under a proposal filed by Solyndra’s attorneys in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.
The attorneys say the extra money will add motivation at a time when workers at the solar company have little job security and more responsibilities because so many of their colleagues have been fired.

Police at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have racked up $41.4 million in overtime this year, including a rank-and-file patrolman at the George Washington Bridge who has made $221,000.
Payroll figures and names released for the first time Friday by the Port Authority show 66 police officers have made more than $200,000 so far in 2011, thanks to overtime that in many cases has doubled their salaries.
The Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, the union that represents most of the police, says high overtime numbers are the agency’s own fault. President Paul Nunziato said the union has been asking the Port Authority for years to hire more officers.
“To me, it’s absurd, and I’ve told them it’s absurd,” Nunziato said. “It’s cheaper to hire another guy and pay his benefits than paying someone 2,000 hours or 2,500 hours at time-and-a-half.”
The Port Authority did not immediately comment on the numbers. The agency operates New York City’s airports, its seaports, a train system, and several bridges and tunnels. It also owns the World Trade Center site.
