I have a question.

Let's say a McDonald's manger currently makes $15 a hour, the cashiers and food prepare people make $9 a hour. The minimum wage is raised to $15 for everybody, what happens to the manager?

$7.25 is too low, nationally $15 would be too high. OK in high col metros. Prob $10 makes sense for a national minimum

Bernie Sanders won't pay his own campaign staff $15. Funny, huh?


Do as Dems say, not as they do

$10 an hour in 2025 would still be a starvation wage.

This is a bald-faced lie to give you cover for your other lie (that housing isn't a cost of living).

Fact is house prices directly impacted inflation numbers until the Reagan administration tried to get high inflation under control and changed the formula. House prices still indirectly impact inflation data.

It has nothing to do with it being an investment as you claim. It was deemed to volatile and they can justify diminishing it's role as many people have locked in mortgage rates - just as I tried to explain to you. Stop BSing to cover your other BS.

Instead of screwing around with a bill that will never become law, they should be doing their jobs and addressing the border issue.

Grade school economics: when costs rise, prices are raised to compensate. Grandma who lives on fixed income has to switch from eating Alpo to eating store-brand. The cost of living index that determines Social Security COLAs excludes food and energy, 2 of the top expenses for seniors.

What does Bernie Sanders say? Do you actually know? His own proposal is not $15 NOW, but several years from now. He's actually addressing the nonsense argument that a SUDDEN increase would be disastrous.

How about all the retired people on a fixed income, many just getting by paying rent and for food. Raise minimum wage and suddenly they will not be able to live anywhere. As it is now they are being pushed out of the high COL areas to lower COL areas.

Covered once. In Sanders program $15 an hour starts years from now. He pays his campaign workers a salary of $36,000 a year. You do the math.
