Um ok @KrystenSinema so 7 years ago it's a no brainer. I'm assuming you're opposing 7 years later now bc with your new found elected power you're adding in inflation amongst other factors and pushing for a higher $? Cuz else it sure sounds like lies and selling out #MinimumWage
@AOC I’m 47 I’ve never held a #MinimumWage job in my life Do you know why? Because I hustle and I’ve always wanted something better for myself. Government needs to stop pandering to people and encourage them to get off their ass and make something of their life. #thatisall
What we learn from this evening's vote is that a subset of #Senate #Democrats are #Republicans masquerading as Democrats. #MinimumWage #CovidReliefBill @Sen_JoeManchin @SenatorSinema @SenatorShaheen @SenatorHassan @SenatorCarper @ChrisCoons @SenatorTester
If I owned a business & I was told I need to pay $15 an hour
I would offer to my employees the option of $10/hour in #Bitcoin / or #DogeCoin. I would pay my employees daily.
much like a server at a restaurant does when they take $3.75 an hour #MinimumWage #SmallBusiness
@marcorubio you’re a #Neanderthal for not voting to raise the #minimumwage, for giving millionaires & billionaires a $2tril #TaxScam, for not voting for the $1.9trillion #AmericanRescuePlan, for trying to kill the #AffordableCareAct & for just being one of the #Trump sycophants
Sin vergüenza eres tú.
The government should get out of the way of business instead of pricing people out of the labor market.
Economics and History show that the #MinimumWage hurts more than it helps. #AOC #Politicians will say anything to keep their cush jobs. #Latinas
Also true: @SenSanders appears to have made no effort to find the #MinimumWage figure that - will - pass. So wage workers come away with 0 raise. Ineffectual factionalism is not the Budget Chair job Berns. They deserve $15, go secure $13 of that for them now. Not strike out 42-58
Sen. Dems voting NO to raising the min. wage
collectively are worth OVER $43Million
Chris Coons DE $10.13M
Angus King ME $9.49M
Joe Manchin WVA 7.62M
Tom Carper DE $5.73M
Jeanne Shaheen NH $3.82M
Jon Tester MT $3.67M
Maggie Hassan NH $3.47M
Kyrsten Sinema AZ ?
You called raising the #MinimumWage a no-brainer & then voted against it? Only 1 of 2 possible explanations:
1. You lied to get elected & then voted against your constituents interests, or
2. You lost your brain somewhere in the 7 years since you tweeted this.
Which one is it?
If #congress & the #Senate were paid #MinimumWage, I wonder how many of them would be willing to do the job?
If you really think about it. It takes zero training & there are no real requirements. So...
Who really deserves a pay hike?
#MinimumWageHike #725hr #CNN #FoxNews
#RaiseTheWage to $15/hr it needs to be done NOW! If you increase the wages of those making #minimumwage, they will spend their money & help the economy. @SenatorSinema @JoeManchinWV @SenatorShaheen @SenatorHassan @SenatorTester @SenCoonsOffice @SenatorCarper @SenAngusKing @POTUS
Working in Australia, I earn roughly $26 an hour as a casual. The fact that the US has the audacity to call itself a developed nation but pays the majority of its people the same wage as cocoa bean harvesting slaves in South America is positively shocking. #MinimumWage
Republicans are NOT the Party of working people, no matter how many times they claim to be.
Watch what they do, not what they say.
They oppose the #AmericanRescuePlan, living #MinimumWage , #RTW, unions, voting rights & democracy, equal justice under the law, vaccination equity
No it's not. Nor is Bernie notching a 42-58 resounding defeat on $15 #MinimumWage today. Needs to find common ground and bring people aboard, not demand 100% and end up with 0.
Call those 8 + 10 GOP's @SenSanders, and find the $ that will pass. Take that then go for more. Do job
Imagine having the ganas to go home and ask minimum wage workers to support you after going back on your own documented stance to help crush their biggest chance at a wage hike during their longest drought of wage increases since the law’s very inception. Sin vergüenza.
Josh Hawley just voted against raising the minimum wage, just like he did in 2018 in Missouri. He should consider the words of a former MO Congressman- “Frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me." For the 2nd time, he has.
@mkraju Manchin thinks all states like his have exp Medicaid .
They don’t .. 10 states like Florida have no expanded Medicaid, the lowest total unemployment wage in the nation and high cost of living
He is holding Americans hostage .. and he should not have this much power
Marco Rubio didn't say SHIT when trump insulted millions of people in the past 4 years, and killed half a million through his lies and incompetence.
He wants President Biden to apologize for calling 2 covidiot Governors "Neanderthals?" HELL NO.
