This year has not been a traditional election year for AU. Late this spring semester, the student body elected me as student government president. I was elected with 63 days to get things done, and I am proud to say that we have accomplished a lot in such a short period of time. However, if there’s anything I learned during my short period as your SG President, it is that progress takes hard work, commitment and passion. That’s why I am voting for Valentina Fernández in this election.

Generally, the argument for a higher minimum wage bases itself upon the conceptualized moral high ground that businesses are exploitative and must be coerced in order to pay a fair wage to their employees.

I do not doubt any of the compassionate intentions of those in support of raising the minimum wage. Rather, I disagree with the claim that this policy will actually help those it intends to.
