Kind: Discuss Raising the Minimum Wage


LA CRESCENT, Minnesota (WXOW)  Congressman Ron Kind says for every three people looking for a job, there's one available.  Given that statistic, Kind says it's important to consider what's called the skills gap.

He says, "what do we need to do to re-integrate these laid off workers so they have the skills for good paying jobs."

Kind says raising the minimum wage should also be discussed in the coming weeks.   You can hear more from Kind by watching the attached video.

Kind is a guest this week on Capitol City Sunday.  You can watch that program on WXOW 19, Sunday at 9:00 AM, following ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."
