Murphy was actually a day one supporter of Raise the Wage, she was at the press conference, but I think she negotiated a slower phase in based on her blue dog associates concerns

Yeah I can’t figure out how we come back from this. I’ve been crying all morning thinking about it. I spent the weekend visiting some friends of ours who were refugees from Syria that moved to Detroit from Charlotte last year. I can’t help but think about their 3 kids and what they will have to go through living in this awful country. It makes me want to give up.
