C.O.P.S.: Taking Care of Officers’ Families. Also, How Economic Policies Affect Low Wage Workers

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – A national organization dedicated to serving the families of fallen law enforcement officers is based in Missouri. And, tragically, they are busy.

Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) is based in Camdenton. Sara Slone explains what they do, the effect they have on families, and why everyone should care even if there are no law enforcement officers in your family.

Also, it’s now common for activists, economists and politicians to debate the minimum wage. What should that rate be and should it actually be what activists call a “living wage”?

Dr. Tawni Farrarini from Lindenwood University’s Hammond Institute for Free Enterprise is a co-author of Common Sense Economics. She explains who benefits from an increased minimum wage and who loses.
