Emmer out of touch on workers' wages and tips

Tom Emmer's out-of-touch stance on the wages and income of hardworking Minnesotans gave us a glimpse at what he would do to Minnesota if elected governor.

First, he thought servers made $100,000 and then he wanted to slash their wages, Now, he's upset because a server, at his town hall meeting, didn't give him a pat on the back.

Emmer is completely out of touch with middle-class families and it's disturbing. Especially during these difficult economic times, when so many workers are struggling to make ends meet, we need a governor who will stick up for everyday Minnesotans. That's certainly not Tom Emmer.
