By midday Monday, crews hadn't even begun the process of removing the eight-car train that jumped the tracks and came to rest on the escalators leading to the airport terminals hours earlier. Nor had they really even begun the process of determining what happened.

Republicans contend raising the minimum wage would be a job killer, but advocates maintain it would help alleviate poverty.
