 Is the Senate Finally Getting Behind Fair Pay for Government Contractors?

Michelle Chen

August on Capitol Hill is, like many things in Washington, divided. Lawmakers take a summer break. But Sontia Bailey, a food service worker, doubles up on work, splitting her days between the Capitol, where she serves meals for most of the year to some of the nation’s most influential decision-makers, and KFC, where she serves decidedly cheaper fare to locals—and earns a little bit more per hour.

Like other senators, Sherod Brown pretends to be sincere, devoted to equity & justice & etc.

He presumes, as do most senators most of the time, he is doing her a favor pretending to listen. He is merely strutting.

Get over it.
