More power to 'em! While the fat hogs in Congress vote themselves obscene pay raises, minimum wage has risen by a pitiful rate. If our elected officials had to ask us for a pay raise, maybe they'd do something for a change.

"...In January Obama formally supported a modest rise to 9 dollars an hour..."
-That's a bloody joke! I say once again $15 an hour...for a start...

I didn't earn $15. an hour when I retired 3 years ago. Always had low paying jobs, working 2 at a time. Yes I know it's a struggle. Now, my Soso Security check, would amount to $6. an hour for a 40 hour work week. So, does the government care about the elderly? Where's our increase?? Still struggling....
