    Why is COLA no longer factored into minimum wage???

    • it never was, they have to vote on each increase. Local governments are better at this, usually raising it each year where that’s passed.

  4. Unfortunate, people deserve a living wage if they work full time. If that means that some goods and services cost more, then so be it, that’s what it should cost. Free market economics will sort that out, business owners should make money based on their efficiency, innovation, strategy, etc., not on the backs of hard working people just trying to get by in a tough world.

  5. Hmmmm… should Dems overrule or move on?? That’s the question now

  6. Well from here in North East Tn. There are way too many people trying to raise a family with 7.25 an hour and this is devastating to them. The plants here are nearly impossible to get a job in and they are coveted jobs offered as top pay of 12.00 hourly most making 9.00 and working their butts off and they live way below the poverty levels and it is generational and it’s not fair to them and it effects us all. So it’s a bad call and it is easy to live on 170k a year and they say they scrape by!!!

  7. Republicans: 1.7 trillion on F-35 👍
    Republicans: 1.7 trillion on covid relief 👎

  8. Oh Bernie not this time. We tried !

    So Congress can declare war, but not increase the minimum wage? Sounds like total BS to me. Maybe if we were BILLIONAIRES Congress would do what they should have done forty years ago. Congress has raised it before-don’t believe any of these people care or even understand America.

    Yes harris push it through .. the people come first 🤷‍♀️👍

  12. Unbelievable! Get rid of the Filibuster. People can’t live on minimum wage, maybe it could be a regional amount for cost of living in the area you live…

  13. This ain’t news the minimum wage will not change for the rest of my life and 15 is still not enough

  14. Give politicians a teacher salary

  15. Big mistake. She just lost the dems the midterms.

  16. Thank god someone with some sense, eliminate some more garbage (a lot more) and it might pass.

  17. A $15 minimum wage in America is unattainable but a worker at a McDonald’s in Denmark can earn $22 an hour? Smh.

  18. Just pass this relief and send those checks out!!

  19. Did the GOP care about the paralamatarian when they controlled the senate?
