French Hill at last makes it clear: He is dodging minimum wage question

J. French Hill , the 9th-generation Arkansan and millionaire banker, made it clear over the weekend that he does not yet have a position on the ballot initiative to raise the Arkansas minimum wage , currently paying $13,000 a year for a full-time worker who takes no vacation. That's a little bit more than a quarter of the $46,000 it takes to join the Country Club of Little Rock, where French Hill plays golf and about double yearly club dues of $6,600 Hill's record on the minimum wage continues to evolve and devolve: June 8, he told KUAR he opposed both a state and federal minimum wage increase.
