    Higher wages would alleviate poverty - By LeRoy Gomez, The Coloradoan
    The question of poverty is also a moral question and should not be neglected to a matter of economics. If an employer cannot pay the lowest-paid workers decently, he should probably not hire any help. In setting up a business, the employer should think of his employees first or else simply employ his family and not exploit his employees.
