This has been an area of frustration for me. I will readily admit I am frustrated with both parties and their unwillingness to do what is right in order to maintain control. This has been an area where I have been upset with Democrats. The easy solution is to increase the minimum wage, index it to inflation and be done with it FOREVER. Problem is that I sincerely believe many people want to keep it as an open issue just so they can bring it up every few years.
