Letter to the editor FSA

I am writing in response to the front page article by Adam Kurtz, Dec. 16. His first paragraph says children will lose Head Start Services in North Dakota unless the federal vaccination mandate "is stopped."

This suggests that the mandate is causing children and their families to lose important services rather than that the services will be lost due to the behavior of misinformed staff who choose to expose themselves, their families, the community and the little children to the virus.

Montana, Minnesota and South Dakota all have minimum wage laws indexed to inflation meaning when inflation goes up, so does the minimum wage.
