"Raising the federal minimum wage would devastate the local tuna industry, Faleomavaega said in a statement last week..."
Anytime the government sets or fixes prices, including setting the minimum price for labor, it has negative effects on the economy and some people are going to get hurt. It is never a good thing, but our government just keeps doing this stupid and hoping for a different result.

A federal minimum wage is a bad idea anyway you cut it. The fact that a dollar will buy more in some areas of the country than others is one huge glaring reason ther should be no national minimum wage.
