Finally Someone Said It. Raise The Minimum Wage With Automatic Cost Of Living Adjustments.

Barack Obama in his 2013 State of the Union address called for an increase in the Federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.00 and hour with automatic cost of living adjustments.

Assuming a person works 5 days a week for 52 weeks, at $9.00 an hour, their yearly salary will add up to $18,720 a year. Senator Mitch McConnell's salary as Minority Party Leader is $193,400 and John Boehner's salary as Speaker of the House is $223,500. This means a person working full time making $9.00 an hour will be making 9.7% of Senator Mitch McConnell's salary and 8.4% of John Boehner's salary.

A minimum wage with automatic cost of living adjustments could solve the minimum wage problem forever. Eliminating the necessity to visit it every few years.

So why are Boehner and McConnell against raising the minimum wage to $9.00 with cost of living adjustments? I don't have the answer. Maybe the lame stream media along with their constituents should ask them!
