Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib called for a federal minimum wage of up to $20 an hour at a “One Fair Wage” event in Detroit on Sunday.
“Big fights like this one, $15. When we started it, it should have been $15. Now I think it should be $20 … It should be $20 an hour. $18-20 an hour,” Tlaib said in a video posted by America Rising on Monday.

And who is going to fund these lazy good for nothings?
I need $45 to survive. Please im yitzha hashim.
No problem, reduce legislative salaries, escrow the salary savings into a pool and distribute to make up the difference for 10 McDonald’s workers in D.C. Legislators who occasionally use their frontal cortex, what’s a hash tag for that?
Forget about being an anti semite. Shes a lunatic. Why stop at 20 maybe 25, 50, 100. Did she take a survey of business in cities that already have 15 minimum wage to see how they were affected. In NYC there is a program called youth corps it helps youths ages 14 to 21get jobs in the summer. These children got work experience, earned money, and kept them off the streets. The daycamps benefited since they didn’t have to pay the staff with youth corps. This year because of the 15 dollar minimum the city cut out the working program for 14 and 15 year olds and in general very few children were accepted for youth corps. A daycamp administrator told me because of this added expense. He may not open next year or will have to raise the already high tuition. So who lost out? Everyone did. But $20 is a good sound bite until it bites.
I propose we pay everyone a minimum wage of $100 an hour. (What can I say? I luuuuuuuv those Benjamins.)
Why stop there?
How about $50 an hour?
So CLUELESS how economics functions.
Not clueless but rather couldn’t care less about the effects as long as she can claim that she is for the working person
Im a small business owner…..the $15 hr is already hurting me. I have to fight with online sales and now have to dip deeper into shrinking profits to pay employees more.
Crazy Bernie would have to lay off more employees
Members of Congress should be paid minimum wage for the little work they do when they’re not campaigning. They should also have to buy the same healthcare plans that all other non-Members buy.
in order to pay unskilled workers so much, employees will have to raise the prices of their goods and services to a point where no one will be able to afford purchasing those goods and services. she is as brilliant an economist as she is a congress person.
Reverse growth. The regulation only asks more skilled workers.
Read yireh just the gross fat democrat. Real concerns drive a better market.
