I was saddened to read the “almost amused” attack on Rich Elfers and his recent column on business and government. It was typical of the extreme conservative view that wealth is the end all and be all of this country or our existence. It was saddening to see a defense of child labor and 14- to 16-hour work days.

The legislature struggled making decisions in a timely manner thereby requiring multiple sessions. Amazingly, they didn’t suffer too much angst over their 11 percent pay increase while struggling to raise the teachers’ pay; new teachers would gladly work for the $40,000-plus the legislators receive.
