A 'Living Wage' for Fairfax?

Supervisor Catherine M. Hudgins (D-Hunter Mill) has introduced a proposal for a  living-wage ordinance. The ordinance  would require county government and private companies that do business with it to pay more than the federal minimum wage. Full-time minimum wage workers earn less than $11,000 a year.

We all know how expensive it is to live in Fairfax County. Other jurisdictions have such an ordinance. Is it time to join them?
