    Time to look out for the workers - By John Sweeney - and Jim McGarvey, Helena Independent Record, MT
    Today in America, workers are working harder and longer for less pay: For the first time on record, U.S. household incomes failed to increase for five straight years - and that record includes the Great Depression. And the minimum wage, adjusted for inflation, is actually worth less today than it was before the last increase was passed 10 years ago.
