Wouldn't it make sense and improve the country if all Government workers were paid minimum wage by the hour? Congress can never get anything done because nobody ever works.

The Government shutting down has absolutely no influence on my life except a possitive one. The President and Senators don't really care because they already paid themselves.

Maybe in a simple world...

I think you could pay them triple minimum wage and it wouldn't change a thing!

What level of professionals will be working there?
Are you going to ask PHD's etc. to work for $7.75?

We'd have a Government run by drop outs. I understand you might say that's what they are now but, realistically, nobody would work there.
