Transcript Minimum Wage Initiative Shot Down living Wage efforts die in the cold of January BY: Casey Garrett A lthough Houston vot- ers approved a new stadium, a minimum wage increase was too much for them to stomach. A proposal to increase the minimum wage in the city to $6.50 an hour was at stake. While it drew some support, it was defeated, 77 to 23 percent. The result was no surprise, since it was opposed by Houston Mayor Bob Lanier. He asked citizens to "Please vote no for the minimum wage initiative:' Had the initiative passed, it would have greatly effected the University of Houston bookstore and its staff, said General Manager Lynda Radisi. "If it passed it would limit our ability to employ the large amount of students that we do, making lines longer during rush periods. It would especially hurt graduate students as they get future jobs!' she said. Alumna and bookstore employee Maria Sanchez summed the issue up when she said, "You won't find many people in favor of the initiative here, because we are an educated population, and we know it is bad economics!' Sanchez has worked for the bookstore for seven years while completing her degree in history and antropolgy. "I think a gradual (increase) over a longer period of time would be more effective. Small businesses could better prepare themselves;' Sanchez added. "It wouldn't have effected us (as much) because we are a large business, but it would have been detrimental to small businesses;' said fellow employee Delondo Fields, senior clinical psychology major. For now, the people of Houston will have to manage with the current $4.75. Alumna Maria Sanchez checks the availablity of textBOOKS. Sanchez has BEEN AN EMPLOYEE OF the UH Bookstore for seven years.
