Why not a $20 minimum wage in Athens? The Athens Clarke Commission has the power to do this. They could demonstrate leadership and have the highest minimum wage in the country. Doesn't money grow on trees?

Then they could all watch and see how many local businesses move out of Athens or close their doors.

A stoke of the government pen and voila, many people get a raise!

And why not free bus service too. The riders don't pay enough of the millions of dollars to run the buses anyway.
