    they like against raising the minimum wage; in the end, their refusal to do so reveals their true agenda.  They want two things: to protect their friends in the largest corporations from having to share the results of productivity with the workers, preferring that the rewards go exclusively to the CEOs and shareholders; and they want to hold on to their soapbox.  They want to be able to push the "lazy, undeserving, moocher"poor narrative to voters.  It's a double win for the GOP.
