Obama has called for a pay raise and pay equal in the u.s which will make every happy because more money = less problem U.S citizens have to deal with. Obama also wants to make so that both men and woman of the u.s both get paid the same amount. Last year Obama did call for a pay increase and this did happen last year. Obama is also trying to get more leave pay and overall is trying to give americans access to more money. In this tough economy because of inflation and in his last two years Obama is trying to close this game to help americans everywhere.
