weaselzippers;Study: 96% Of Dems Who Supprt Raising Minimum Wage Don't Pay Their Interns
[Ed; And Then Some.]
In this week’s State of the Union address, President Obama is expected to ask members of Congress to pass a nearly 40% increase in the federal minimum wage.A new Employment Policies Institute (EPI) analysis shows that the vast majority of the bill’s sponsors are legislating with a “do as I say, not as I do” approach: Fully 96% of the House and Senate sponsors of the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013 do not pay their interns. In other words, the same Members of Congress who are supporting a 40% wage hike on private sector employers are simultaneously failing to provide any wages to their own employee interns.
