How Much Time Will It Take, and How Much Time Should He Be Given?

For decades Congress has periodically, but also rarely, discussed legislation to require employers to pay a particular minimum wage. The process by which this discussion comes up is determined by many factors: the economic climate at the time the discussion takes place; which political party is in power in both houses of Congress; who is the President at a given time; what is the mood of the electorate (are they feeling benevolent or are they tight-fisted?); is prosperity or is paucity more prevalent in the national psyche when the politicians summon up courage to debate a minimum wage, and so on.
