I'm writing in response to the three musketeers column ("Minimum wage hikes attempt skirting natural law," The Daily News, July 3) talking about "natural law" from their positions of white privilege (a position I share): To what natural law are they referring? The law that says if you don't make enough to feed, house and clothe your children, they will fare less well than children who don't suffer from the same inequities? The law that says these children will be at a disadvantage all their lives?
Their closing thought, "The better approach is for all of us to improve our skills," is the height of arrogance. When does a minimum wage worker, working two jobs to make ends meet, find the time or the funds to improve their skills?
