This is a petition to reduce the salaries of Congresspeople to minimum wage.
I’ve been growing steadily more irritated with Congress’s continual refusal to increase the minimum wage. Every time it’s brought up in Congress, it gets shot down. We’re either being greedy or it’ll hurt the economy or some other nonsense that keeps those working for minimum wage in poverty.
Then Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia came out with a statement saying that Congresspeople aren’t paid enough.
Yes, that’s correct. A Congressman actually came out and said that Congresspeople don’t make enough, despite each person making over $100,000 a year.
And yet, people are expected to live - including in places like DC - on minimum wage.
This is so beyond offensive to me. I’m done with the government shitting on those of us who make minimum wage. So I made this petition to reduce the salaries of Congress to minimum wage.
If minimum wage is good enough for the rest of us, it’s good enough for Congress.
Please, sign this and signal boost the hell out of it.
Let’s get their attention.
We only have 22 right now.
I’d like to remind you that we got over 200k signatures on a joke petition to deport Justin Bieber.
If that can get so many, then this should easily get enough.
Do not just like or reblog this. Sign the petition AND signal boost it!
