Step 2: Ask for the office of one of your senators. (To find out your senators' names, click here.)
Step 3: Tell the person who answers the phone:
"Hi, my name is _______________ and I'm a constituent. Please tell Senator _______ to vote for S. 2, the minimum-wage bill. Please oppose ALL amendments, including “poison pill” tax breaks and assaults on worker rights. Will Senator ___ vote in favor of S. 2 and oppose amendments to it?"
Step. 4: Repeat Steps 1, 2, and 3 for your second senator.
It's been a long, hard fight, but we're almost there. Please do your part--Seamus needs a rest.
NOW A WORD ON TRAINS. El Cabrero recently "heard" from another blogger that merely mentioning the word "trains" will drive up hits to blogs. This is a test. (Note: there is method to my madness. Anyone cool enough to like trains is likely to be cool enough to call their senators in support of raising the minimum wage.)
In addition, it is the official position of Goat Rope that trains, locomotives and related things are cool.
In fact, sometimes El Cabrero dreams of trains. And like tunnels and stuff.
