Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) slammed the Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough’s Thursday ruling against including a $15 an hour federal minimum wage increase in a coronavirus relief bill, stating that he strongly disagrees with the decision.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the senator said that “because of the archaic and undemocratic rules of the Senate, we are unable to move forward to end starvation wages in this country and raise the income of 32 million struggling Americans.”

The article goes on to state the following:

MacDonough ruled earlier on Thursday that increasing the minimum wage as part of a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill doesn’t comply with budget rules. In order to move forward with the wage increase, House Democrats would have to remove the language from the bill before it is passed Friday or garner support for the bill in the Senate.

In his statement, Sanders declared that he will “move forward with an amendment to take tax deductions away from large, profitable corporations that don’t pay workers at least $15 an hour.”

One Twitter user asked, “what happens to the people making $16 an hour who earned it and been with a company for a while? Will they get a raise too ? or just find out that new employees are now going to get paid $1 less than a long-time employee.”

Another Twitter user chimed in, “Here’s a suggestion. Stop letting congress and the house vote on the wellbeing of the majority of the population and let the population vote on it. If it passes then enforce it. Stop letting the wealthy decide the fate of the less fortunate.”

  1. I totally agree with the one Twitter person statement. My husband has worked at a farm since he was sixteen and is making 15 an hour now. He is almost 60. Any job at minimum wage right now does not equivalate to the time and effort my husband has put into that job over the years. He stays at that job because the people we works are wonderful. That is his part-time job. His main job he’s put in 16 years at and is only making $7 more and change than the 15 and has been there 16 years.

  2. Democrats are out of touch with small businesses and how they still suffer from their strict lockdown and closings. Now with the struggles to reopen how do these businesses make any profit! I hate their radical agenda

  3. When things don’t go their way it’s ALWAYS someone else’s fault. Yawn. It’s the same ol’ nonsense from these crazy people.

    It’s time to formally divide our country. We are not coming back from this one.

  4. I wish minimum wage was back to $5hr. People making $20hr would be able to afford to buy a home. $15hr, home prices would go drastically high which they already are, people can’t afford a home as it us right now on top of everything else going up in price. People with lots of money where they could go out and pay cash for a $300,000 $400,000 home don’t care about people that wouldn’t be able to make payments on one. That’s about the price of homes these days. Shows they don’t care about the majority people.

  5. What part of minimum wage is for folks who are just starting out do they not understand. A company is tasked with training and educating employees to advance and help the company make money. If a person is in a lifetime minimum wage job then they need to take a good look at themselves in why they have not advanced to a higher paying job.

    I could go on…but obviously most who are here reading this message understand. It’s those who are not here reading that don’t get it. SIGH.
