$15 minimum wage not allowed in Covid relief bill

Nonpartisan Senate parliamentarian MacDonough ruled Thursday that Democrats cannot include a $15 per hour minimum wage in their $1.9T COVID relief package. She determined lawmakers could not include the policy under budget reconciliation. Reconciliation allows the Senate to pass bills with a simple majority. WH press secretary Jen Psaki said President Biden was ’disappointed in this outcome.’

Kamala can override it. The parliamentarian BS is not even in the constitution. This is all part of the plan to brainwash Americans into fighting against their own interests and roll over to corporate interests (Republicans have bought into this hand over fist.) The accumated wealth of the 650 billionaires in the country adds up to over 4.2 TRILLION DOLLARS. Why are you listening to THEM telling you that you don't deserve to make 30k a year instead of a measley 15k? Wake TF up.
