Members of Congress appear to be insulated and immune to the daily struggle to survive in this economy. This point is underscored by their resistance to any minimum wage increase and willingness to hold the American economy and welfare of American people hostage to an agenda that does not benefit the average person. Lets truly hold Congress responsible to the people of the United States and pay them the federal minimum wage. Congress has the power to increase the minimum wage anytime they choose. Remind members of Congress who they really work for.
