Minimum Wage:
Democrats Say $12 ... In 2020

Apr 27, 2015

Following the April 15th protests in some 200 cities for a $15 minimum wage, the congressional leadership of the Democratic Party announced it would introduce a bill to raise the minimum wage ... to $12 in 2020! They don’t even expect the Republicans to allow this bill to pass. They just intend to use the issue for the elections in 2016. As if we needed any more proof that the Democrats aren’t really the “friends of Labor” they pretend to be.
