60 Minutes "Gets" Minimum Wage, Kind Of
By David Henderson
The island [Samoa] may lose its tuna industry. One cannery, Chicken of the Sea, has left. And because the U.S. Congress wanted to help Samoa by imposing American minimum wage, Governor Tulafono is worried that the last cannery, Starkist, could look to other shores.
This is from last week’s “60 Minutes” segment on Samoa, reported by Scott Pelley. That’s Pelley talking above. It’s hard to tell whether Pelley gets the irony of the U.S. Congress “helping” Samoa by destroying its tuna industry. He seems to but he doesn’t linger on it. Check the 9:30 to 10:30 segment.
