Occupy SLC is hosting a forum Saturday on a bottom-up stimulus idea to counter the trickle-down economics popular among conservatives—raising the minimum wage.---

It’s an idea no one is talking about, but Occupy SLC members and others are hoping to start a dialogue in this country that raising the current minimum wage of $7.25 an hour could help reinvigorate the economy and at the same time help low-income workers survive and thrive in the tough economy.

To learn more, check out the free forum at the Salt Lake City Library, 210 E. 400 South, Oct. 13, 10 a.m.
