Labor Sec. Marty Walsh Says He and The President Are "Committed To Raising The Minimum Wage.”| MSNBC 1


This week’s jobs report was better than expected, and the Biden Administration laid out their American Jobs Plan. U.S. Labor Secretary and former Boston mayor Marty Walsh joins Ali Velshi to talk unemployment, his commitment to increasing the minimum wage, and the economic effects of the Coronavirus. He says, “I get a lot of questions today about ‘what will next month look like, do I think it will be better or worse?’ It will depend upon all of us and what we do as far as our behavior and taking care of ourselves.” In spite of the pandemic, the American economy appears to be getting stronger. The most recent positive jobs report is likely attributed to the easing of coronavirus restrictions in states and counties across the country, but it could be a double-edge sword.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

    Consider $30,000/year is minimum wage. This is how expensive it is to live in USA. 30K income is a struggle to live on for a single individual.

    Could never tell you come from Bahsten. Mahty. Lol

  3. Keep up the good work. I know this administration has professionals who know what they are doing and they care about this country and it’s people.

    Thank you President Biden for putting Marty Walsh in your cabinet.
    Fabulous asset to this country!

  5. I miss you Mayah Mahty 😢

  6. Thanks, Joe!

  7. An individual cannot live or even buy a sandwich for lunch on minimum wage much less a family to live on is an absurd notion. Even at $15 an hour lets an employer take advantage of cheap labor for profit.

    The government gets roughly 25% of your earnings, 33% goes for rent/mortgage. 10% goes to sales tax. Your forced to have health insurance, car insurance, home owners insurance, an property taxes. Then there’s electric bill, water bill, gas bill, phone bill an gasoline bill. WTF is left to eat on.?

      And you”ll have to pay to keep Trump in jail 3 meals a day for him while your lucky to have a burger.😦

      And that’s all assuming that you had enough money to pay off all the other bills you mentioned first, which I really don’t think you would be able to making minimum wage pay

      @Michael Power that is money well spent

  9. If a job needs to be down, then it should pay enough to live on. Period.

  10. So does he actually know the answer to the $15min wage “how to”…?

    If he was committed to that they would have pushed it through on this last bill when they had a chance. They could’ve.

    Politicians better talk really hard with their bed-buddies, corporate America, cause there will be a ‘Class Revolt” in the whole country STILL trying to starve us to death….it’ll make the insurrection look like a cake walk!

  13. Hear that?
    That’s the sound of angry voicemails from corporate lobbyists being left on republican phones all across the country.

    I rate Bitcoinsamurai 5 stars!!! And 6 if there’s a space for that. Warning for newcomers: the days feels like decades to complete after investing.
    Side tip: put your money in there and take your mind off it. I have experimented and I have come to trust them with my funds

  16. God its great to hear a man speak with intelligence 🙂

  17. AWESOME video title. It needs to be $15- $18+, with no dam inflation. $15 is LOW!/ THE MINIMUM!, AKA A BUS RIDER!!!!

    Nice contents you put up always👌.BTChits a new bullish price as people increased their bids in hopes of making huge gain from the rise but as we can all see now the market is very unstable , the truth is that you can always make more profit from tradln rather than just hodlin and waiting for the price of BTC to skyrocket . Indeed its a tough decision for both old and newb!es whose intensions are just to hodl and sell but rather the potentials of tradln. I wept deeply and prayed after the last time i had much loses, my Uncle introduced me to Garric Norman who i started tradln with since late last year, i’ve covered up and made over 11B T С with 2.7B T C even with the ups and downs since the journey With Garric counsel I no longer have to worry about the rise and dip ofBitcoin. For prof!table tradlng guidiance, You can easily get to him on ͲҽӀ ҽցɾąʍ @garric_norman_fxt cheers.
