A: Hardy is a strong proponent of raising the minimum wage. He did not give a specific figure, but he believes raising the minimum wage will help lift people out of poverty. He is not concerned that raising the minimum wage will cause product prices to increase or jobs to be lost, since no one has ever proven that has happened in the past. If people are making more money, increased product prices will not matter.
Improving the nation's decaying infrastructure also will create jobs, he said. "I have spent my life listening to and being with people to whom the politicians haven't been listening," Hardy said. "I don't plan to stop now."
