The majority of lawmakers sponsoring legislation to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour do not pay their interns, according to a report from the Employment Policies Institute.

The Raise the Wage Act, which would increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, was introduced by the Congressional Progressive Caucus in May.

“The federal minimum wage has been a stagnant $7.25 for far too long, forcing workers to juggle multiple jobs while barely making ends meet,” the caucus said in a statement.

    I’m reminded of a line in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (the brilliant, superior Alec Guinness version) when the Roy Bland character says to George Smiley when speaking of cognitive dissonance:

    “As a good socialist, I’m going where the money is. As a good capitalist, I’m sticking with the Revolution, because if you can’t beat it, spy on it.”
