The hypocrisy. Aptly termed, "do as we say not as we do". The British guy makes some strong points and calls out those who don't back up their words with action themselves.

Study: 95% of Lawmakers Who Support Minimum Wage Hike Don't Pay Their Interns

At least 174 of the 184 lawmakers who support legislation raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour do not pay their interns, according to a recent Employment Policies Institute analysis.

In the Senate, Senators Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Cory Booker, Chris Murphy and 20 other cosponsors of the Raise the Wage Act hire unpaid interns. In the House, Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Keith Ellison, Maxine Waters and 145 other cosponsors do not pay their interns.

On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Stuart Varney said the phrase "do as we say, not as we do" is quite applicable here.

I've never heard of an intern in any profession getting paid.

Yea some do, even some "volunteer" fire men around these parts .

Fighting fires is a bit different then bringing your boss coffee and a bagel.

May be, but the premise is the same. Socialists and career "Non business people" always pretend they know what is best while happily allowing the shipping of jobs to enemy states like China.

Consider Obamacare. If they had such faith in this great Act, why are these same politicians exempt from it, instead getting a sweetheart deal? It is problematic to say the least, isn't it?
