raise the minimum wage already

Dear Rep. Dave Reichert, Sen. Patty Murray, and Sen. Maria Cantwell, 
Please in the name of human dignity step up and work to RAISE the minimum wage. The "American Dream" is becoming a myth as the richest x percent get richer while the poorest cannot even get a leg up anymore. Hard work and honest living should pay off. These days, corporate greed and "shareholder value" are the new morality. I teach citizenship to immigrants working at the bottom of the ladder. Raise the minimum wage to restore at least some of the rungs the current administration has worked to remove.
