The year of living dangerously

Ok here is the link from the IT. I still think a stickey like the radio one would be good. … 50968.html

Most of it is colour op ed,which is fine, but I have an issue with the following statement:

"The minimum wage was removed but had to be restored. "

Now this never happened, and as far as I know it was never even considered.

Did this happen?, or is the paper of record wrong?
