Arizona Merits a 'B' in Worker Freedom

The Alliance for Worker Freedom has given Arizona a ‘B’ on its latest national report card on worker freedom.

An excerpt from the report card:
“With a minimum wage of $6.75, almost a dollar above the Federal level, Arizona is discouraging productivity by stagnating economic growth and hurting small businesses. This is further evident in their measure of entrepreneurial activity which scored below the national average.”
“AWF believes that free markets and free citizens is the best formula for workers,” the report says. The states that were graded ‘A’ are Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, South Carolina and Utah.

The states that flunked this test are Connecticut, Hawaii, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. I’m sure they’ll be grounded.
