Too many people work where too much sweat is exchanged for too little income. And Republican Senators are unwilling to change the status quo. Since 2009, the minimum federal wage of $7.25/hr has not increased. Same goes for Senate pay. But while Senators make $174,000/yr, a full-time job at minimum wage is about $15,000/yr. That's probably one week's pay in rubles for #MoscowMitch.
It's outrageous that Republicans wage war against the poor.
