have you seen 30 days with morgan spurlock...about living on mim wage
in it he and his girl try to live 30 days on min wage jobs...they realize it is shit

then they talk about Kennedy introducing a bill every year to raise min wage and always gets defeated.


IF the congress had to live truly on min wage, they would change their minds...

2. I think it should be a requirement
to get elected at any"public service" job/politician....all prospective politicians MUST live on minimum wage or disability pay rates they make other people live on with the same paltry or no benefits ,for at least a year to even be considered for the job.That requirement,that goes beyond slumming for photo ops,would keep the rich vain bubble boys out of the races.

9. I would guess "Go Make That Happen," but I could be wrong.

Edit: I was way off. It's "Great Minds Think Alike."

3. I did and I think someone should introduce a bill
that would make it a requirement that anyone seeking a seat in the legislature or white house be required to spend 30 days living on minimum wage before being seated. Call it the "tough love" bill

7. I'd settle for repealing or revoking Congress' yearly salary increases,
cost of living increases, insurance, and retirement.
