WHY THE PUSH TO RAISE THE MINIMUM RAISE?

Follow the money.

UNION PAY SCALES ARE SET BASED ON THE MINIMUM WAGE!  Unions pay $X above whatever the minimum wage is.

This is another Obama sop*** to the unions.  He couldn't care less about a 'living wage' for working people, or he wouldn't be intent on wiping out the best health care AND HEALTH CARE DELIVERY SYSTEM in the history of the world!

sop:  a conciliatory or propitiatory bribe, gift, or gesture

Example they used:  (change a few words and you get the meaning!)
<as a sop to the teachers' union for supporting his reelection campaign, the mayor promised to push for a raise in the minimum wage>

And that is your vocabulary word for the day!
