WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate parliamentarian has dealt a potentially lethal blow to Democrats’ drive to hike the minimum wage, deciding that the cherished progressive goal must fall from a massive COVID-19 relief bill the party is trying to speed through Congress, Democratic Senate aides said Thursday.

The finding by Elizabeth MacDonough, the chamber’s nonpartisan arbiter of its rules, comes as Democrats prepare for House approval Friday of an initial version of the $1.9 trillion package that still includes the minimum wage boost.

The article goes on to state the following:

It will force Democrats to make politically painful choices about what to do next on the federal minimum wage, which has long caused internal party rifts.

Democrats were seeking to gradually raise the minimum wage to $15 over the next five years, but at least two Democrats are opposed to it, and other moderate Democrats have voiced concerns as well.

Sen. Bernie Sanders declared in a Twitter post Thursday, “Raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour would benefit 32 million workers and would give low-wage workers an extra $3,300 a year. I’ll say that again. Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would benefit 32 MILLION workers. Let’s get it done.”

Democrats have said if they can’t get the $15 minimum wage in the COVID-19 relief bill, they will push it through in a separate legislation, or attach it to a massive infrastructure program.

Republicans have fiercely opposed the $15 minimum wage, warning it will destroy businesses and kill jobs.

  1. This was a disaster when Dems tried this in Seattle a while back. Many employees laid off with no unemployment and businesses closed

  2. If they raise this yes some people will see an increase but at what cost. How many people will loose jobs? Now the trickle effect- farmers and other companies making things will have to increase their products on to whom? the consumers. Do the numbers, you bought something that was costing $5 will now cost $10 or more because these companies have to fork over more money to these employees and who is going to pay the difference Beth we the consumer. Old Bernie doesn’t tell you that, you make more but everyone cost more. So where do you come ahead. You don’t. Then the people who lost their jobs and can’t find new ones are struck paying more money they don’t have. Wake up!!

  3. Minimum wage is not to be considered as a living wage. Minimum wage is for those high schoolers getting their first jobs. If you’re 30 and still making minimum wage , there’s one of two problems. Either you’re not worth it and need to increase your own skills, or your boss isn’t with it and you need to leave and find a better job. Flipping burgers doesn’t constitute $15 an hour. Your $5 Big Mac meal will jump to $10 if that stupid deal is reached!!

  4. Historically raising the minimum wage doesn’t help anyone.
    .
    Following each rise of the minimum wage is a tsunami of INFLATION!
    .
    This makes everyone have to pay more for everything.
    Everyone..
    .
    This includes the elderly who don’t get a raise and the disabled who already are struggling.
    .
    Stop pandering to people who have no idea what they’re talking about.

  5. The dollar is down by 5% i just checked that one and the cost of groceries is up along with gas slowly increasing. I felt that one big time when I went grocery shopping on Monday. Had to fill up my tank first and it was the first time in years it cost me close to $30.00 to fill my tank. I saw an increase in groceries when I shopped on Monday. That $15.00 an hour won’t put anyone ahead since inflation has started to raise it’s ugly head. Most of these young people demanding that increase probably haven’t lived through inflation boy are they in for a shocker. Many politicians are millionaires and they probably have someone doing their shopping so they have no clue.

  6. All these people that want this huge hike in minimum wage are not seeing the whole picture. This move will kill this country. Minimum wage jobs are not career jobs. They are designed for first time jobs or temporary jobs before you begin your career. This move will destroy small businesses. Target and Amazon are NOT small businesses!! Prices are already going up on everything. This move will cost consumers tenfold. We will definitely be a socialist country if this goes thru. I do not think the feds should be involved. It should be at a state level only. No to the $15.00 per hour increase!! I want to remain a FREE nation. Don’t be fooled by the Dems!! This is a bad move. They are so damn sneaky!! Please look at the big picture.
