Sanders slams decision on minimum wage

Sen. Sanders slammed the Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough’s ruling against including a $15 an hour federal minimum wage increase in a COVID relief bill. ’Because of the archaic and undemocratic rules of the Senate, we are unable to move forward to end starvation wages in this country,’ Sanders tweeted. Sanders pledged to continue to fight for increased wages.

Sanders slamming companies for not paying a $15 minimum wage when he didn’t pay his own staff that, and then when he raised it to $15 he cut their hours is peak leftism. When experiencing personally the consequences of his polices he’s still too dümb to put 2 and 2 together.

Why can't democrats take a loss and just let it go? He can't force all employers to pay $15/hr so now he wants to penalize those who don't with more taxes? How is that supposed to help anyone but the IRS? Will taxing those companies help the employees he claims to care so much about? Will the deductions lost outweigh doubling every minimum wage workers salary? I seriously doubt it. Labor is almost always a company's number one expense. If he actually cared, he would back off his $15 and negotiate for a number he could pass without going through reconciliation. Typical Democrat. Never backing down from an idea, no matter how bad it is or how many people are against it.

If Sanders is so convinced that the people want this then he should bring it in separate bill, and not try to sneak it in in an emergency relief bill.

If company's income keeps going up every year, in some case exponentially, why do wages of the people who do the work stay the same? Why does your company owner deserve more money every year and you the person doing the work don't?

UBI solves the minimum wage problem pretty well as far as I've seen.

Did his staff leave after this? Possibly to work anywhere else? Nope. Seems they stayed employed and stayed working for him instead of going to another campaign.

In the middle of the plannedemic where small business are already struggling and have cut work force and hours ( if they were allowed to reopen anyway) you want to force them to pay ppl 5 to 7 more dollars an hour🤔 This will result in these exact 3 things even less jobs, less hours, and increase price for all goods and products because no business will pay a single penny more it will get shifted on to us to pay and with hyper inflation right around the corner and biden already in just 5 weeks has raised the gas price .80 cents a gallon at the pump by his horrendous decisions.

I wish I could find one republican to tell me why the average household income is the same as it was 20 years ago but the cost of living keeps increasing, I want to know which of their party is running on a platform to help the middle and lower class wages match inflation and cost of living.

Coming from the same guy who refused to pay his staff 15 dollars a hour during his campaign, then after he did start paying his staff 15 dollars per hour he cut their hours.
