Greedy bastards

Today marks the longest stretch in U.S. history that there has been no minimum wage increase—3,614 days. I’ve been criticized for this so let me say it again: the federal minimum wage of $7.25/hr is a STARVATION wage. Every worker deserves a living wage of at least $15 an hour.

And yet, as Rebecca noted in "wtf? seriously, wtf?," the House of Representatives is proposing giving themselves yet another raise.

Rebecca's way to fix this problem:

i propose we have an amendment that takes away the power congress has to give itself a raise.

instead, the american people can vote every 4 years - when they vote for a president - to decide whether or not congress deserves a raise.

that would be fair and that would be just.
