Letter: ‘Living on the Edge’

To the Editor:

The front-page article “Living on the Edge” (May 18) was a winner. It hit the nail on the head. It graphically described how much energy and thought goes into keeping your head above water when you have too little income for the outgo. It can be exhausting.

The article should be required reading for all those in Congress who are against raising the minimum wage and are shaving away at food stamps and other programs that help those who, for one reason or another, are unable to get along entirely on their own effort.
