Re "Why Obama is loved" (Letters, Feb. 21): Letter writer John Kerhlikar seems to be classifying minimum wage as free stuff. A wage is not free stuff. A wage is earned money for work done. Why would anyone begrudge their fellow citizens a living wage? Minimum wage is not a living wage. It won't even buy the very basics of food and shelter, let alone anything else, especially in California.
