    I am in favor of minimum wage rules, but it has to be an hourly rate for real work, and indexed to the rate that congress makes. Since congress isn't likely to increase MW for ordinary folk, we need to reduce congressional BASE pay considerably, and pay them by the hour, with only 2 weeks paid vacation per year..
    How about we reverse that.

    Representatives make the mean wage of the people they represent. Representatives their district, Senators their State, President the nation.

    I guess that makes it alright, then....?
    but I am not limiting my remarks to just food. Job discrimination is still a major issue in the USA.

    add to that term limits and you might be on to something....6 years maximum term for all of them, no benefits.
    And if they go corrupt within that 6 years, they can serve another 6 in Leavenworth Federal Prison, in Kansas, without airconditioning...

    Well because if you do not take care of a child, that is called neglect which is a crime. Now if the child dies from neglect then it becomes a homicide. That means if you are walking down the street and come upon an infant and scoff at the parents for not being there, and walk away then the child dies from exposure, then you go to jail. Or if you see a child being abused by their parents you are required by law to report them otherwise you can be charged as an Accomplice to the crime. These laws are in effect to protect children from asshole monsters that would leave a child to rot because they just do not care. Talking about lazy....

    At any rate you are asserting that the Government should break the law, not a very logical assertion IMO.
