There are many more seniors than there are people working for Minimum Wage. Dept of Labor stats says only 1.7% work of MW, many times this of seniors on fixed incomes . State and Federal politicians force MW up to accomodate those few which drives up the overall cost of living.
Seniors on fixed incomes, MW drives you deeper into poverty and I never hear a peep out of you. If gov't is going to mandate wages then they should be passing a law that when MW goes up your fixed income goes up. Seniors we should be a hell-of-a-political force, but we are not.
Most unions have in their contract if the gov't raises MW then unions wages are re-adjusted to compensate for MW increase.
Seniors I am ashamed of you for just sitting back and letting gov't walk all over you.
