US President Barack Obama will bypass a fractured Congress to act on income inequality as he delivers his annual State of the Union address later.
 

The White House said Obama would unveil an executive order to raise the minimum wage to 10.1 dollars an hour, for new federal contract workers.


The Democratic president is expected to announce other executive orders, which do not require congressional approval.

He is facing some of the lowest approval ratings of his presidency.
