One of the main reasons wages have not kept up with the economy is: Consider the British Parliament; the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Far too many of us vote with the House of Lords but really are in the House of Commons. You are never going to belong to the House of Lords, if you keep voting against the House of Commons. Especially since members of the House of Lords, do not give a darn about you (except at election time).

Your analogy is obtuse. It makes no sense. I’m assuming that the House of Lords is the Democrat Party, since literally all billionaires in Silicon Valley, corporate CEOs and big banks are all for that party. Or haven’t you been paying attention?

Your comment is confusing and vague. If you're suggesting that the minimum wage should be raised, I would remind you that small business owners are already suffering if they're still in business at all. Not only that, but raising the minimum wage has anecdotal evidence of producing fewer jobs. I'm wondering what incentive people would even have to stay in school if they can get $15 an hour for flipping burgers.
