Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to raise the minimum wage, shun dictator lobbyists, and pass the Schedules That Work Act, the Get Foreign Money Out of U.S. Elections Act, and the Postal Service Reform Act. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to raise the minimum wage. What was the federal minimum wage in 2009? $7.25 an hour. What is it in 2022? $7.25 an hour. How much has inflation gone up since 2009? 31%. And if the minimum wage had gone up 31% since 2009, it'd be $9.50/hour. Of course, if the minimum wage had kept pace with inflation since 1969, when it was $2/hour, it'd now be $15.32/hour, making the Fight for 15 movement about 32 cents an hour behind! I won't hold that against them, because they've done great work raising state and city minimum wages all over America. But all of America deserves a higher minimum wage; our politicians don't really lead on such things, but we can make them follow. Really, our leadership is all that's ever got them to act.
MoveOn helps you tell your Congressfolk to stop meeting with dictator lobbyists. Because people who work for dictators deserve shame and shunning, if anyone does! Yet some foreign dictators hire ex-Congressfolk and their ex-staffers as lobbyists in D.C.; their numbers include, incredibly, former Rep. Ed Royce and Nancy Pelosi's ex-Chief of Staff, who both shill for Egypt, and former Senator Norm Coleman and former Rep. Buck Mckeon, who both shill for Saudi Arabia. You can see why having a former member of Congress might benefit these nations, but you'd have a harder time seeing how that benefits us. If anything, these folks already get too much say in how America works, or doesn't work. The good news? Shining any amount of light on these relationships makes them wither like vampires in noonlight. So let's get to shining.
The National Women's Law Center helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 6670, the Schedules That Work Act. If you work retail, or restaurants, or other service jobs, you work an absurd schedule that can hardly even be said to fulfill the needs of your employer, and good luck making a doctor's appointment or picking up the kids from school. The Schedules That Work Act would fix that, by requiring 11 hours between shifts for all workers and notice of schedules two weeks in advance (and compensation for workers whose schedules get changed or cancelled with less than two weeks' notice). The bill would also prevent retaliation against employees who request changes to meet obligations. I can already hear all the bad managers in the world saying HOW CAN I DO MY JOB?! But the good managers would welcome the certainty the bill promises.
The Juggernaut Project helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 6283, the Get Foreign Money Out of U.S. Elections Act. Among the so, so many other harms it's done, our Supreme Court's notorious Citizens United v. FEC ruling -- which cited the doctrine of corporate "personhood" to assert a "right" for corporations to flood campaigns with more funding than ever before -- actually gave foreign citizens a way to influence campaigns with contributions, by essentially using American corporations to launder those contributions. Campaign donations from foreign citizens is otherwise illegal, so this is a big deal, and we need H.R. 6283 to close that loophole. It's bad enough that rich Americans can drown out the rest of us; we don't the whole world drowning us out, either.
Finally, Daily Kos helps you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 3076/S. 1720, the Postal Service Reform Act. I know, we just did this on Tuesday! But on that very afternoon, our House passed H.R. 3076 by an astounding 342-92 vote, which you will recognize as an actually bipartisan vote, since it included 120 Republican "yea" votes, which is well over half the caucus. And the Senate version, S. 1720, counts 14 of its 28 co-sponsors as Republicans. Turns out hamstringing our Postal Service into prepaying almost a hundred years of retiree benefits in advance so that it has financial problems only a few years later is quite unpopular! And many Republicans appear to have heard that. Still, it certainly wouldn't hurt to remind them that you're watching them.
