ellen canavan started this petition to US Senate Senator Schumer

Eight Democrats joined Republicans in killing the amendment to raise the minimum wage to $15. All 8 have said they support it. All 8  are millionaires, out of touch with their constituents who favor the raise by a large (76%) majority.  
The People, both Democrats and Republicans were not only in support of $15 but desperately needed it in this pandemic and economy.
Yet these senators chose to ignore that and their constituents and left them continuing to make starvation wages.

this will force some low income people to continue working two jobs just to make ends meet and take care of their children and put food on the table. This is not right. If the democrats have a plan to revisit the $15 an hour wage we would like  to hear it. Too often it’s “Say you’re for something then when you get elected don’t actually do it and never fight for it.

therefore this petition calls for a halt in paying senators their usual salary and replacing their salary with the minimum wage of $7.25 for the next year. This could teach them a lesson in what it is like to have poverty wages, and put themselves in someone else’s shoes. 

Please sign below. Goal is 500 signatures.it will then be sent to 8 Senators, President Biden and Janet Yellen
