Oil boom driving up wages on farms and ranches

Oil boom triggering cowboy shortage across Canada

A growing economy does more to increase worker pay than the minimum wage.  You can see similar situations in cities like Midland Texas where fast food workers are making substantially more because of the competition for workers with oil drillers.

The Obama administration is still blocking offshore energy exploration and drilling in places like ANWR which would boost the US economy and be far more beneficial than messing with the minimum wage.
