Minimum wage

The Elmira Star-Gazette has an interesting editorial about the minimum wage here :
Most states, especially in the nation's midsection, still base their pay on what the federal government enacts.

The trouble is that the federal minimum has not gone up since 1997.
. . .
Members of Congress tie their own minimum salaries to an inflation factor. Why not the minimum wage, too?

So, we ask, have you contacted your congressional representatives about this yet? It's not too late.
