While asking Congress for legislation on an immigration bill and a minimum wage hike, Obama also announced a variety of executive orders, including one to increase the minimum wage for some federal contract workers from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour.
"America does not stand still, and neither will I," Obama said. "So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that's what I'm going to do."Obama made many executive orders to address income inequality. He increased federal minimum wage through his executive orders. A minimum wage helps only those who are employed at the minimum wage. Is there any hope that Obama will give an executive order for a citizen dividend for all Americans?
