Letter: Cost of Living Keeps Going Up

Cost of Living Keeps Going Up

To the Editor:

As Larch Miller (Forum, May 20) said, the front-page story in the Sunday Valley News, “Living on the Edge” (May 18) was an absolute winner. However, I think the letter writer might have missed the point. I believe that the woman featured in the story makes more than the minimum wage. That obviously isn’t enough, but I do not believe we can blame the minimum wage for poverty. Perhaps if the cost of living stopped increasing, it would be easier for millions of people, regardless of their hourly or weekly wages.
