Malkin’s news for Dems: It’s ‘not an international human rights crime to eat cheap Ramen’

In a stunt designed to draw attention to raising the minimum wage, U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., and a handful of fellow Democrats are participating in a week long challenge to live on the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

Titled “Live the Wage Challenge,” the goal is to live for a week on a $77 budget.
